Bug 20255 - Simple Loop Labeling

I do this, in my code, too.  I also label my else's (with the opposite of
the condition, of course)
4D's macros have a cool way of making this happen.
for example, to make a labeled if
type the text of the condition
Select the text
Insert the if macro
The condition is replaced with
if condition then
end if #condition
That's not entirely correct, because 4D uses the ` as the comment symbol,
but you get the idea.

If you use Levure, Trevor foolishly accepted my indent rules for
sublimeText.  I added an indent rule for blocks labeled like this
#<this is a block>
#</this is a block>
The code in such a block will be indented another level, which means I get
visual separation within the block, and I can fold it.

On the first day, God created the heavens and the Earth
On the second day, God created the oceans.
On the third day, God put the animals on hold for a few hours,
   and did a little diving.
And God said, "This is good."
