I just want to point out that Tom Christiansen complained the last time this was brought up, because he had many scripts still using it, as at one point it had been the only way to call subs.

Also, do we want do foo() to have its logical behaviour of passing the return value of foo to do-file?  Or should it be a syntax error?

(The latter is the type of question we should always ask when removing a feature.)
