Yes, there is a limit to how long this is funny (although the story
about implementing SKIPE and SKIPN was not made up). There is a serious
need for internal functions. I just feel that GOSUB would be a cure
worse than the disease. Internal functions MUST take arguments and MUST
be called the same way regular function are; it MUST be possible to pass
them as arguments and return them from functions. Second-class objects
are a loss, and GOSUB does not give you objects at all.
Can't you implement your own GOSUBs, using a computed GO to return, or
something? NCOMPLR would not generate PUSHJs, presumably, but it might
do what you want...
