Personally I find break (and it's younger brother continue)
rather handy in certain situations (though apparently some
people seem to think that kind of hackish or something). I'd
love to see break remain in the language even if labels
aren't going to be used by it. To tell you the truth, the
idea of breaking using labels seems kinda weird to me. In a
pinch "break n" might be a semi decent workaround to get the
same basic funcionality (with a loss in clarity).
