  That is semantically the same that what I've suggested in my email 
about code blocks and statement. Though no one commented directly on it.

  The only difference was that I've used postfix variant of the syntax 
in the examples and had a comment about other variants after that.

  Anyways, we should continue this discussion in the jsr308-statements 
mailing list. I resent updated version of my email to that mailing list.
