I don't really remember needing to use a DO* type binding of
iteration variables. I guess I would use a LET to bind some common
value and use it in the init part of the iteration values.
I use the DO* type of binding far more often than not.
And it isn't an issue for the init part of the iteration,
it's for the stepping.
I think you've kept the part people like least about
LOOP (the keywords) and thrown out one of the parts
people like the most.
