Foxpro goto command and deleted records

In Foxpro if you do a


with deleted off and record 7 is deleted, the record pointer doesn't
move (at least in version 6).

I don't like that.

I see four other options:

0) don't move the pointer (listed for completeness)
1) go to that record anyway
2) go to the next undeleted record
3) go to the seventh undeleted record (possibly the least practical)
4) raise an exception

Any opinions?
