Agree! For loops, are not nearly as flexible and powerful as while loops.
For loops can get you stuck in a certain mode of thinking and you try to
develop hacks to manipulate the for loop to do what you want to do, when
in fact just using a while loop with more custom control is the way to go.

I love for loops for their simplicity, but difficult problems cannot be
solved via for loops.
