Me too.

While I like the idea of nested functions, since they are like closures and 
make a lot of common operations (such as iterating over a collection) a little 
more concise in the source code, you can certainly implement anything without 
nested functions that you can with them.  Probably passing a pointer to a 
local structure is the easiest way to do it in most cases if the iteration 
function needs to access some state, right?
