Yes, and yes. The "named let" construct is ideally suited to that.
See the second half of <URL:http://www.schemers.org/Documents/Standards/
R5RS/HTML/r5rs-Z-H-7.html#%_sec_4.2.4> for a example. Note that the
use of a "cond" inside the named-let is quite common, and that any
branch of the cond which *doesn't* (tail-)recursively call the named-let
procedure is an "exit" of the loop, thus providing an arbitrary number
of distinct exit cases.
