Well, what really should happen is that an exception should be thrown.
I don't know what all compilers y'all are committed to supporting so I
can't insist on that.  But if one must work with some lowest common
denominator, "goto error_return"s are OK in my book, especially if the 
compiler will catch errors like the one in question.

YM obviously does V.

Ughly; IMHO that's not a win.  The biggest one would cover, what,
about 50-60 lines?

Thanks, I saw it; I want to stick to the main line for the moment, is all.
