That's true, of course. Several issues (such as forward referencing,
'continue' keyword and others) can't be addressed by a Standard Library.

Imagine this:
In ten years or so, an enthusiastic newbie (I think most of us have been
enthusiasic when we were new to Euphoria.) posts on EUforum:
"Hi there, I'm new to Euphoria. In general I like the language, but I'm
missing a 'continue' keyword."
Who of us would want to go through that discussion the next ten yars? smile
