The "continue" for for-loops would jump to the iteration construct, not
the top of the loop body (as reloop would).
It would be conceivable to have both redo as well as continue (they
would both make some sort of sense in a for loop), and not allow
continue at all for repeat..until.
I don't like that all too much, but it would also make sense.
