Okay, aside from (failed?) humor, you actually should be shot if you think
labels/goto are an acceptable convention in C code.  They are a horrible,
terrible creation and really only exist for compatability with old code
(but who wants to use code that has "goto" in it, anyway?)

Anyway, there really is no difference between:

  goto do_pour_end;



except for fact that the "goto" will probably compile into more assembly
instructions (should; but I can't say for certain).
