Well, 'end' is hard to get rid of, but 'then' is already totally unneeded by the compiler.  It
could be made optional by tweaking one line of code, with zero side effects. Same goes for the
"do" following "for" and "while" loops, totally unneeded.

I would love to see these superfluous tokens be made optional, given us a slightly leaner,
Python-esque source.
