i like this.  of course, 'deep' breaks are usually convenient.  'deep'
continues not so much, IMO.

taking it to an extreme, i think 'if', 'while', 'until' and 'for'
(both variants) could be chainable blocks, terminated by a 'do' or
'then' ('else' too?), so you could write:

for k,v in pairs(t) while itsok(k) do

if whatever(x) until finish(y) then

while going(a) if keeps(b) for c=ever(d) until tired(e) do

does that make any sense??

i kind of like it... but not sure... it's weird
