It's not the "programming concept" that matters. (Whatever that ethereal phrase may mean to you?)

It is the wholly artificial distinction between "flow control" and whatever is the complement of that in this context?

    I make a whole lot of "wholly artificial distinctions". Most people call them "programming styles". Programing styles can be every shade of good and bad, but just pointing out it's a programming style isn't an argument.

        I'm just wondering what's wrong with artificial distinctions. So much that it needs to be mentioned and highlighted.
