   I've seen other languages which have a "label break", and it does make
it a lot easier. Using a "quisi-goto" is better, in my mind, then using a
goto. The limited form would tend to reduce the number of errors, I should

The formats I've seen before (when properly Cified) are:

	/LABEL/ while ( Condition ) {
		    exit /LABEL/;

		exit /LABEL/	-- this would cause an error -- no long in scope
