Lua 5.2 uses "goto continue" if you want to, and implicitly translates
"break" to "goto break" whether you want to or not. The opportunity
to provide a "continue" keyword in Lua 5.3 seems not to have been

So basically my post says: if you can't beat them, join them.
If you are forced to type "goto continue", at least be spared
the trouble of inserting ::continue::. It *is* just an idea.

But the fact that no other language uses it, if true, makes me like
it better, not less.
