Yes, I do miss for loops, and also miss "break" and "continue" instructions.

Well, thats a matter of taste, but I would suggest:

FOR statement1 WHILE expression THEN statement2 DO block END

In my opinion, it reflects in a better way the real order of execution of
statement1, expression and statement2.
