Yes... when you have to have 5 of these conditional blocks it makes 
things really cluttered in order to satisfy the "goto's are always evil" 

FWIW, in C++ we have scoped pointers which (in most cases) accomplishes 
what these goto's are trying to accomplish.  Scoped pointers are 
(usually) better than using goto's.
