Since I'm not very intimate with `loop', the while form is clearer for
me, tho not enough to justify preferring one over the other.

That's OK: the main rule is "use a prefix", if the prefix is exactly the
same as the file-name it's best, but it's not crucial.

No, the main reason for a misc-lib.el would be for it to not be
preloaded, so the division wouldn't be based on the kind of
functionality provided but on whether those functions/macros are used
often or rarely.
