in thread How has your coding style changed over the years?

I understand your motivation and I can see the advantages if the eye can easily "fall thru" to the next statement on same syntax level.

But I doubt that the "end" was always meant to be part of the block.

My guess is it evolved from a jump label in assembler, as such a reentry point into the higher level.
