You know what I could use many times? LABELS, ala SCHEME,
however, what would suit me most of those times would
be a simple extension to PROG, a GOSUB ala BASIC.
. . .
Question: Is this a reasonable feature to have?
I find it hard to believe you're serious. There are so many things
wrong with it that I can hardly begin to list them all. So I won't.
LABELS would be easier to implement given the internals of the compilers
I've dealt with. A non-correctly-closing version of LABELS whose functions
merely shared the lexical environment (hmm, sounds like a LET binding
&FUNCTION variables) isn't very hard to implement. But don't hold your
breath waiting for one in Maclisp.
