Sorry - I should have made that more clear - 'next repeat' and 'exit 
repeat' are definitely immeasurably better than GOTO or hand-coded 

Just to clarify - I meant 'harmful with respect analyses the compiler 
might want to do in the future' when not tied to the directly enclosing 
loop. I answered my own question by responding to you though - it is 
almost the same transform required as for 'exit repeat' :)

Warmest Regards,
