This would depend on the implementation of the VBLANK.
I usually want to redraw the screen even if nothing changed.

Also, I'd add that apparently C does not have/no longer has this issue(at
least by C11, see
http://port70.net/~nsz/c/c11/n1570.html#6.8.5p6). Where the loop condition
of a for loop is a constant expression (empty conditions are included), the
loop cannot be assumed to terminate. I can't see much of a reason for this
to be different between the two languages.
