Wow, how could I miss this? Somebody added goto to the Python programming language! Not just plain gotos, either, but real computed gotos as well. Unfortunately it was just an April Fools joke. Yes, I said unfortunately. try/except works well for most uses, but sometimes a good ol' fashioned goto really hits the spot. They also seem to have added comefrom, perhaps the most nefarious idea to ever be visited upon computer science.
