foreach(<loop_var>, <list>) {
<loop contents>
Executes the loop contents block over each item in the list, assigning the
loop_var to each item in sequence. The <loop_var> will be a copy so assigning
to it will not mutate the list. The loop will iterate over a copy of <list>
so mutating it inside the loop will not affect iteration.
The block does not introduce a new scope, so that variable assignments inside
the loop will be visible once the loop terminates.
The loop variable will temporarily shadow any existing variables with the
same name for the duration of the loop. After the loop terminates the loop
variable will no longer be in scope, and the previous value (if any) will be
