Proposal: anaphoric if and while syntax

Why not more generally - allow let/var declarations in expressions?

coming from a long and rich C background, I have no issues with the
existing mechanisms... but for those languages that do support variable
declarations in for loops; I've always wondered why not any expression?

if( let a = ( let b = 10 ) * 3 > 10 )
... or ...

c = (let a = b*d)

granted, the scope is extremely limited in the last case...
