PLEASE. We're not programming in Pascal (and thank all Gods for that),
so we can have labels that have meaningful names. Also, we're not
ashamed of using goto where it makes sense, so we don't need to try to
hide the labels by making them look like specks of dirt on our
monitor.

So give the label a real name that describes what it is. Not this kind of thing.

Something like this_used_to_be_the_beginning_of_loop_body?

Seriously, it's strictly temporary thing - it lives for two commits and
gets killed after that.  Exactly because it has no good inherent meaning.
The label replacing it two commits later (several lines upstream) does,
and it gets better name...

No, but at least "loop:" or "repeat:" or something.

That "l:" really looked like a fly shat on my monitor.
