I sure hope I'm not going to stir up any trouble, but why exactly would you
need a GOTO statement?  Many languages have no such construct because the
ability to use functions or routines makes GOTO statements obsolete.  They
are most likley only in VB because it's a legacy thing, but AFAIK C, C++,
and some of the more less known languages such as Clipper, FORCE do not have
GOTO statements.  They haven't been missed either.
