Good point :-)

I was, obviously, thinking about cases with a block - "if (x) { ... }".
But of course a "break" there would currently mean breaking out of an
enclosing "while" or "for", so my suggestion still would not work. I
still think it would be useful to have a way of breaking out of an "if",
but not at the cost of breaking existing code!
