Thanks :)  I prefer the "goto error" idiom, because it matches
my "ideal language" better (sort of like C++ semantics... it
calls all destructors automatically when it exits a block)

Also, I prefer that "variables" (I don't like variables) are defined in
exactly one place (so they are really constants).  You probably
noticed: I don't like side-effects.

So, I guess I've got a rather different style/taste to most
Linux people (and probably GNU people too ;)

I guess I'm using the wrong language.  I'm currently reading
"Purely Functional Data Structures"...

I wonder when I'll be able to write (a reasonable implementation of)
Parted in Haskell?

Anyway, does my strange coding style make my code hard to understand?
It would prefer to have more people understand it, even if it means
I like it less.
