in reply to Would you use 'goto' here?

I can't see any reason to use goto rather than just calling another sub here. It makes sense in the AUTOLOAD case you mentioned because it helps hide something that is basically low-level magic. Here you just have a business rule about doing things one way if calling with certain params and a different way with others. I would certainly want to see that reflected in your strack traces and error messages!
