I agree with Nathan. Having tons of small functions often isn't a good
solution, especially when you'd have to create dozens of small helper
functions. That not just only generates slower code but also makes it
more difficult to get a picture of the algorithm used. I much more
prefer jumping to cleanup labels the way Nathan demonstrated it. Of
course I avoid it where it doesn't make sense.
