I thought of another way to do this earlier this morning, while thinking
about extending the syntax from user-space. (The while(){} got me
thinking about having loop{}, which could be implemented either as
either a block-prototyped function, a preprocessor macro or as
user-defined syntax) Unfortunately the solution I came up with includes
the words `bootstrap the parser', which would probably get me lynched.

Within a computer, natural language is unnatural.
