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.
