SubjectRe: any chance of 2.6.0-test*?
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

The horrific response to the use of "goto" is deprecated in favor of
proper use. A function overloaded with gotos probably should be
reworked. But there there is no need to outright avoid the use of
'goto'. if() is simply a conditional test with a goto A or goto B logic.

There is a reason for the implementation of goto. When it all boils
down to it, in assembler it's all a matter of JMP with or without a
condition.
