Getting rid of those deprecated Do[] loops?

```Trying to think of a "two-variable iterator" approach that will let one
produce the same results as

data = { };
Do[
Do[
data = AppendTo[data, {aa, bb, xx, yy}],
{bb, 10, 30, 10}],
{aa, 1, 2}];
Print[data // TableForm];

without using those universally deprecated (and even worse, nested)
Do[ ] loops, not to mention the equally deprecated AppendTo[].

Somewhat to my surprise, the construction

Table[{aa = kk[[1]];  bb = kk[[2]];  aa, bb, xx, yy},
{kk,  {{1, 10},  {1, 20},  {1, 30},  {2, 10},  {2, 20},
{2,30}}}
] // TableForm

using a two-dimensional iterator iterator variable kk, actually does
this, though the "iterator list" is obviously a bit messy.

Simpler way of defining an iterator to do this?  In more than two
iterator dimensions (aa, bb, cc,...)?  (with no functional dependence
between the values of aa, bb, cc).

Is the concept of a multi-dimensional iterator variable kk mentioned in
the M6 documentation anywhere?  (A search on "Iterate" or "iteration"
brings up 193 hits at 10 per screen.)
