At present one can already do this:

for i=1,10 do for j=i,10 do
   if test1(i,j) then goto out
   elseif test2(i,j) then goto next_i
   elseif test3(i,j) then goto next_j
   -- do a lot of work
::next_j:: end
::next_i:: end

`continue` can replace `goto next_j` only. Not enough to justify a keyword.
