   return with an expression in a function returning void is not allowed.
   Neither is a label without a following statement.

Says who?  ANSI C?  The GNU coding standards?  Some broken C compiler
out there?  Who?

Please please please please tell me (and I've asked you for this
before in private email) what C compilers do not accept these
constructs as they are.  I think it is very ugly when coded in this
way so I'd like to avoid the change if it isn't necessary.
