Yes; this is how modern Fortran does it.


It has the advantage over "break 3" that if you add or eliminate a loop, it
an still exit the intended loop.

At the moment, I need to tag my "end repeat"s as you do here; even better
would be "end repeat looppyloop", so that mismatches would throw errors.
