Surely you jest?

You'd have to break Erlang to insert loops.  First off you'd have
variables that need to be changed.  That substantiably breaks Erlang
imho.

If you want to loop, you probably want to map or fold.  If you need to
loop you might want to use gen_server instead, or at the last resort
use a tail recursive call.
