Of course I was confused by the way the analysis was being phrased
(as Ron at BRL-TGR nicely pointed out).  If "statement" is given its
normal meaning, as intended in the C language specification, then
	while ( expression) statement
is correct syntax.

I think this shows what confusion about statement terminators and
statement separators can produce.  Sorry I allowed myself to be
confused by the bogus analysis I was responding to..
