Your examples all look correct at a glance. As you show, the return, break, or continue must nest within the "container" required for that statement in a regular block, as for a block-lambda. But your examples nicely show abstraction away from actual block arguments using let-bound local variables. (This will be less optimized in advanced implementations, but no worries.)
