I am a human with a name.

comment Where did the notion of “one return only” come from?
This is not "fallout from the newer version control systems". This is PEBKAC. 1. The example is incomplete. 2. The author clearly shows that he checked out the fresh code after the second author changed it to return; 3. The author didn't restore the previous if logic when he changed the code in the third example. Don't blame the VCS for bad code.
