And yes, I would shoot anyone who used this construct and am amazed that it
must have seemed a good idea to someone at one time. For the kiddies, it's
COBOL. If anyone claims they can offer a worse statement we should definitely
NOT implement - step up and show your cards.
Bring back "ban the GOTO" and the supporters of the "COME FROM (label)"
statement war I say!
