Your avoiding the FOR statements reminded me of an article
I read many, many, many years ago when I was in a small group
of people writing an Algol 60 compiler. The magazine (it may have
been CACM, but I am not sure anymore) article advocated replacing
all Fortran FOR statements with ON GOTOs and calculated GOTOs.
Jiminy crickets I thought to myself, calculated GOTOs, that guy
must be nuts. Towards the end of the article the author embarked on
discussing the virtues of the proposed COME FROM. Wow, wow,
wait a minute!!! I checked the date of the issue, and yes it was
the 1st of April.
