Small steps.  Yes.

Yes, I get it.  I think I have said that before.

I'm talking about the for loop and paste support needed to implement
loops as first described by Che-Liang and as worked out by he and I to
improve the syntax.  This would be used for top-level defs only.  For
example, in the register definition example Che-Liang gave originally.

I will not change anything before the 3.0 branch.  But I am working on
this functionality with the understanding that it is desired.  Please
tell me now if we've changed our minds.
