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

When I was at Data General, writing C (and a little C++), we had a set
of internal coding conventions that mandated a single return point for
a function. Goto's were used during error checks to branch to the
function exit; something like this:

frodo() {
  int rval = 0;

  if (bilbo() != 0) {
    rval = -1;
    goto leave;

  if (gandalf() != 0) {
    rval = -1;
    goto leave;

  /* lot's of code here */

    return rval;

Made sense to me.
