Don't use it! Is that clear enough?

At the 2003 International Mathematica Symposium, one of the invited 
speakers was John Nash. His talk was quite interesting but the 
Mathematica codes he showed were very primitive. At the end of his talk, 
Roman Maeder turned to me and remarked that in 15 years of working with 
and coding in Mathematica, this was the only time that he'd ever seen 
anyone use Goto ...

Cheers,
Paul
