Ah, that's my mistake. In that case, I know this isn't a democracy,  
but, for what it's worth, I'll toss my hat into the ring for the  
original 3-way colon separated proposal:

for ( String foo : someStringList : anyName ) {

where anyName's type becomes a class created for java 1.7, which  
includes index(), isFirst(), remove(), and other useful utilities, all  
based off of the iterator. I believe Stephen Colebourne made a formal  
proposal for this one.
