Cancelling a script??

If the loop is tight enough, the keypress never gets through.  I've just
got into the habit of putting an escape hatch into loops that can go wrong.
Something like:
if the environment is "development" and the shiftkey is down then exit to
(or if you want the user to have access to the same exit, don't check for
the environment)

Then all you have to do is hold shift and the loop will exit.
