I think that the issue might have been the "for o of-type" because LOOP
doesn't need the quote there, being a macro and supporting
destructuring and all.  I'm still not sure why it only complains once
and then recompiled the same file without error, however.

I took the quote out, and will leave it like it some time; I'll report
later on about if I see the note again or not.
