:)  There is never a season for 'goto' statements :)  You want to 
perform this code twice, at most.  It seems more logical to place it in 
a for loop that repeats twice.

The bibletime guys maintain the locale wiki page.  Great suggestion 
about the comments.  I don't have access to the page to add the suggestion.

Thanks for the help with this!  I'm non-en_us locale stupid, so all 
comments and code are most appreciated!
