>Can you get off the fence on adding goto? How about call/cc?
For now, I only have problems, not solutions. However, I think it is debatable whether call/cc is more approachable to beginners (who admittedly don't write compilers) than goto. Call/cc is probably less of an attractive nuisance as many simply don't understand it. It also is likely to have a larger impact upon implementations.
