Things that would be useful to see in a language.
A common idiom is looping “forever” (well, practically you need to exit that loop at some time).
The idea is that the keyword forever stands out more obviously to the
reader, making it clearer what’s going on. In a language like C,
you could define a macro
forever to be replaced by
(1). Either way, the compiler should be on the lookout for
perpetual loops, and check that there is a path out of it (some sort of
break; somewhere). Not finding a way out should be a
warning, not an error, as there is GUI code which loops forever.
