i and j are about as far as I go with nested repeats.  Although sometimes I
further process the resulting tEmpList in yet another repeat loop.  It
helps me to follow my own code if I can produce a list with modifications,
and put tEmpList (into msg) before proceeding with more processing.
Personal preference.

I do like the idea of a script checker, with suggested ways to write it in
a "cleaner" way.  It would be very good for noobs who haven't yet formed
their own habits, good or bad.  There's always a better way, and sharing is
the BEST way to find it.
