Frankly I hate the goto() calls. :-)  Doesn't that double the load on the 
server, since Drupal gets built up, processes the request, redirects, and 
then gets built up AGAIN to display the page it was already at?  What's the 
advantage of the goto, when the downside is doubling the load on the system?

which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to 
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession 
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it."  -- Thomas
