Well, *that* much is easy. If I understand what Menashe is asking for:

  do (init-statement)
  } for (condition; increment-statement)

...but is it worth it? I just don't know.

(OTOH, I wouldn't mind `do` having an optional init-statement...)

...although that's very close to being an SC break, and I can already
hear compiler vendors complaining about the necessary look-ahead :'(.
