Does anybody find the first version here objectionable?
FWIW I think it is clearer than the second.
I also noticed myself changing an iterator function to take an out
parameter to avoid assignment in a loop condition. This is another way
to get the same effect -- but it also obscures the code more than the
"plain C" style.
I propose that if there are no objections we allow the idiomatic
assignment in a loop header -- but nowhere else.
