Hmm, no it doesn't, it just forces users to pick meaningful names
instead of just "muh, whatever, I'll just use ::continue::" -- in other
words, the result is probably _better_ than a simple "continue" in most

[If continue were the sort of thing that gets used _a lot_ maybe this
would be too high a burden.  But it's not.]


Education, n. That which discloses to the wise and disguises from the foolish
their lack of understanding.
