Re: st: looping over parallel lists - is there a alternative to "for"?

Nick pointed to a solution to the parallel list problem, and I think we must accept that most of us have a good chance to live longer than -for-.

But wouldn't it be nice if -foreach- could:

foreach A of varlist c1-c10 \ B of numlist 4/2 7/1 { do something with `A' and `B' }
