in thread GOTO considered (a necessary) evil?

last, next and redo can take a label as well. And then you will have the same problems if you now point out with goto.

Yet, next and friends having an optional label is seen as a feature, not a misfeature. It might very well be that the author of Perl had used the goto LABEL if he had not added optional labels to next, last and redo.
