This would be helpful in several other cases that have come up on this list, e.g. it would allow creating new control statements with trailing closures which could offer expected behavior, e.g. a timesRepeat method instead of adding new looping syntax for that as discussed in another thread.
Furthermore it might allow "return" to be used for non-local return.
