 In any case, that means that it could be made required to have a control

 that you didn't intend to put a destination for the goto if you use
 "continue switch" instead of a "goto case" without a destination).

It's a small thing, but I think "continue switch" could be misleading. Consider this: switch (getState()) { case X: setState(Z); continue switch; case Y: break; case Z: writeln( "done!" ); } Having never encountered D before, what would be your interpretation of this code?

Well looks pretty good to me to be honest.

So if the initial state is X, is "done!" printed or not?
