I can't dig up the precise quote, but it's something like:

  The beginner uses GOTO indiscriminately.
  The novice avoids GOTO indiscriminately.
  The master is discriminate enough to use GOTO where it's needed.

(Major apologies to whoever came up with the original quote.
My paraphrase doesn't do it justice.)

Somethin' to ponder. ;)
