If there were closures that supported nonlocal exits, then `do`, `for...in`, and possibly other constructs could become library functions, and other "block-like" library features like `autoreleasepool`, `withUnsafePointer` would work more naturally too.

If a `for` loop became a library function with special closures, what would happen to labeled break statements?

outer: for i in 0..<5 {
  for j in 0..<5 {
    break outer
