Exactly: last , next , redo , ... are just gotos with restrictions.

Throwing exceptions is also a kind of goto.

I remember a talk where TheDamian showed code which was not better written without goto.

Knowing that fire is dangerous led to new methods for heating, cooking and constructing lamps.

But this doesn't mean lighters and matches have no use left and must be strictly forbidden.
