What I meant by that is that currently the for (int ..) form is prevented
by style but also technical argument (compiler compatibility). If you
remove the technical argument by breaking the compiler compatibility of
such form, what remains is only a style choice to make between mixed
stat/decl and for (int ...); AFAIK there is no difference for a compiler
between the two.
