Indeed they did, it could of been used, don't know why it wasn't, but my patch works quite well for me.

I like having a `continue` keyword, and I especially like having Lua take care of creating the ::continue:: label for me and not having to use the ugly `goto continue` syntax... thankfully we just have `break` and don't need to create our own ::break:: label and use `goto break`... ick. ;)
