I have an example, but its complexity means I forget how it works every time I look.

I seem to think it's a case of a Let inside a Let, calling itself?

Let(name, name+1, if(name=limit,0,run_this_let _again))
or
Let(name,99+name-1,if(name=0,0, run_this_let _again))

Sort of thing? edit: ok adding 99 is a bad idea, I was trying for a counter that counts down.
Does that 0 enable exit? If I am even remotely on track.
