in reply to Goto-labels for exception handling?

"Exceptions" are ... well ... by definition ... "exceptions to the rule." When an exception occurs, the interpreter finds itself in a state wherein it must somehow dispose of the exception before further execution can resume. I therefore do not envision this situation as being one which can possibly, meaningfully, involve a goto. If such a thing were reasonable, it would have been implemented long before now, and probably would have become standard practice. The fact that, right now, such a thing is not, is probably also very meaningful . . .
