(untested)

			if ($prevline =~ /^\+\t{$tabs,$tabs}(break|continue|return)\b/ &&
			    !($1 == "return" &&
			      defined $lines[$linenr] &&
			      $lines[$linenr] !~ /^[ \+]\t{$tabs,$tabs}return/)) {
				WARN("UNNECESSARY_ELSE",
				     "else is not generally useful after a $1\n" . $hereprev);
