If you want a bit more advanced looping you could have a look at my goof-loop:

It currently does not support a break or continue clause, but adding one should 
not really be a problem.

A good thing is that it does not rely on mutation for anything except higher 
order sequences, meaning it does not lead to the implicit boxing overhead of 
set!, which is a good idea in loops since that quickly adds up.

I also have a mutation-free loop macro, named 'hat-let' or 'let^':

Its origin is rather different though, goof-loop appears to be the result of combining various loop-related constructs, plus some extras, whereas let^ is the result of combining various binding constructs (including the 'let loop'), plus some extras.

It combines the following: let*, lambda / define, receive, 'let loop', 'if', 'begin'.

Doesn't do any accumulation though.
