"Break" and other ways out of loops and switches

I believe that PL/I has the LEAVE statement which takes an optional
label. This would be equivalent to the 'break scan' type of
construct. This can be very useful when you are not allowed to
use GOTOs without writing a five-page paper explaining why you
needed to use a GOTO.
