Is there a programming language that is combination of Python and Basic?

Have to say that I feel jump is more than justified in some situations
(when it's jumping to within 10-20 lines of the start position, and it's
a routine that needs to be highly optimised - I'm thinking tail
recursion etc.)

(btw, how come nobody has mentioned python bytecode? Most flow control
is jumps)
