lua isn't different enough to warrant skipping other imperative
languages when looking for examples

when i look at plan 9 code (mainly C), i see many instances where a
whole function is a loop, and instead of wrapping it in an
superficially indented `while' body, gotos are used

taking that in account, i've modified my personal style so that
control statements are for indentation--and more importantly,
highlighting--and labels and gotos are a space economic alternative

when i approach it that way, it's not just lua, but perl, and c, and
c++, and....
