>> But honestly, other than distaste, I don't see much of a practical issue with putting an `if` or `guard` on the first line with a `break` in it. That still clusters the iteration logic at the top of the loop, even if it's not quite in a single statement.

I believe I've spoken against the `where` clause earlier in this thread, but if I didn't, I will now: I don't like it. However, I believe it was added at the same time as `case` in the variable slot, and essentially as part of the same package of features, so I at least understand where it's coming from.
