This already help, but what about declaring also after some code?

I like on Java/C++/PHP that I can create a for-loop that creates the 
counter... sample on PHP:

for(var; condition; step) for($var=0; $var<1000; $var += 1)

This syntaxe is possible on C++, Java (its not equal, but its something 
very close).

I would like to be able this:
[ some code after begin ]
var I: Integer;
for I := 0 to 1000 do
[ inside the code ]
