Breaking out of labeled statements

When I was at the U. of Wisconsin and took the compiler course, we created
a compiler for a language called "NOGO-III" (ie, 3rd version of a goto-less
language).  It supported the labelled "break" and "continue", was quite
reasonable, and eliminated almost all need for gotos (in fact, since there
was no goto, you were stuck if you thought you needed one).  I have always
been disappointed that C didn't support such a feature.  Maybe it should be
added to various "standards" or future versions of the language...
