First answer the last question:

Are simply talking about removing all the GOTO_EXPR's in the program,
and letting the CFG edges represent those GOTO's? . Is there
anything *other* than explicit GOTOs which are involved? And the reason
this is better is because we dont have to deal with GOTOs that are
required in new basic blocks caused by forwarder blocks which get
created when GOTOs are required?

Because this is far less intrusive than what we (or at least I :-)
originally started arguing about. :-)  And it would be in this state
presumably starting when the cfg is created, and the GOTOs replced when
the CFg is destroyed?
