I agree with Alan. IMHO, for loops in a language like Lua should be 
kept simple. I feel the simple "for i = 1 to 10 do... end" would be 
much more appropriate than a complicated "for-then-while-do-end" 

Whatever is decided, I feel foreach would be a great advancement, and 
am very happy to hear it shall be predefined in Lua 3.1.
