see attachment and below for Changelog.  Regtested OK.

I have opted for the variant "directive not at the start of a loop",
which is what Mike preferred, and what matches the current capabilities.

Is that OK?

Could you please open a new PR for this?

There are many things that could be improved in this context.
There is a lot that could be learned from e.g. the Cray or NEC
compilers, where you can explicitly control loop fusion, loop
blocking, which are very important in (my) practice.

The current implementation also does not support array notation,
which I consider a major limitation.  I'll have to learn how this
could be done.

Thanks for the feedback!
