different strokes, i guess,
but i think "goto" is just a tool.
if it solves the problem, use it.

there are some problems where a "goto" solution can be 
the most elegant, readable, and comprehendable available,
not to mention the smallest and the fastest, don't you think?      :+)

it's good that we "never have to use" goto again, certainly.
but that doesn't mean i'll never _choose_ to use it...        ;+)
