Using a 'goto' to exit from a gosub is a bad idea. A better idea would be 
to set a channel variable and check it's value after the return, in the 
calling context.

Also, can a 'goto' in a subroutine reference an extension in the calling 
context? Seems weird, but 'dialplan' is a weird language :)
