Another good example, thanks.
I had a look at the ll and found that the restore is in the if.end block.
I think it could also go into the for.inc block (just before jumping
back to cond).
Is there any way (from AST in C++) to easily identify 'the block that
unifies flow control at the end of the scope'? does it have any special
attribute one could search for?
