| JS|||| found it useful to remember that the loop macro uses pairs 
| JS|||| of keywords and values and used colon on the keywords.

  You know, this is not true: "then", "and", and "end" break the keyword
  pair pattern that isn't there.  There are probably more exceptions to
  this non-existing "rule".

  when foo collect x and collect y.

  if foo then if bar then do (mumble) end else do (frotz).

  In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none.
  In a fight for something, the fight is a loss, victory merely relief.
