That's a clue you won't find anyone seriously contemplating
such idiocy.

A bad idea. If you really want to write bad code, learn C.

Yeah, it would "interesting" just as a train wreck is "interesting",
as long as you're not the one who has to live through it.

I once translated a BASIC program to Pascal (hint: no goto allowed).
The original code had GOSUBs that never executed a REURN because
the programmer jumped away to line numbers on a whim. Biggest piece
of crap I ever had to misfortune to deal with.

No one has ever missed what you're pining for.
