	That's a good point.  Lua is an extension language; not for doing
anything one can imagine, isn't it?

	I think it is enough.  I don't like labels and I think "break n"
is worse.  We have more than 24000 lines of Lua code in our system and
there are only some cases where we built a function only to break the loop.
