Evaluates the output of the ITL tags encased in the [loop-last] tags. If it
evaluates to a numerical non-zero number (for example, 1, 23, or -1), the loop
iteration will terminate. If the evaluated number is negative, the item itself
will be skipped. If the evaluated number is positive, the item itself will be
shown, but will be last on the list.
