I think, in these kind of language you simply have this irregularity.
Maybe you've been too long in the Lisp camp? ;)

If you really want something like that, what about this?

x = code[[ for i=1,$n do $body end  write"done\n"]]

This should be possible within Lua.

PS: Btw, why does dostring rejects precompiled code at the moment?  Is it
considered too dangerous?  Afaics it should work.
