Suggestion:

A construct that will iterate through several arrays at once, making current values for each one available inside the loop.

Example:

$ProjectID = array("ID001", "ID002", "ID003");
$ProjectName = array("Name1", "Name2", "Name3");
$ProjectManager = array("joe", "bob", "ted");

loop($ProjectID, $ProjectName, $ProjectManager)
{
    echo "$ProjectName ($ProjectID) - $ProjectManager<br>\n";
}

This will print out:

Name1 (ID001) - joe
Name2 (ID002) - bob
Name2 (ID003) - ted

This could be extended to allow skip and max values, similar to LIMIT in MySQL.

loop(skip=1, max=2; $ProjectID, $ProjectName, $ProjectManager)'
{
   ....
}

You can already achieve the same results using the
existing looping structures. This syntax seems more
confusing than useful.
