I use a global boolean called trace:
do debug stuff
But to try to answer your question:
There are two gotos in standard Python.
They are spelled:
"continue" and "break"
The first jumps to the start of a loop, and the last to after the end of one.
Anything more fancy is "Verboten" - except, that, if you ask nicely,
John Machin might explain his comefrom construct.
And maybe I will understand it this time around...
