Ooops...I meant "and I had not thought"...
As I say though I wondered about breaks at first, but then decided that
bytecodes were the only general way to get the gotos. I do have a nice
little assembler and class file writer now for ANTLR that, while not
completely general, it's damn small. Assembler and .class file writer
are each about 600 lines. Could be useful for users of antlr as well
as the tool itself.
