Things get hard to read, especially with gas, which allows up to nine anonymous
labels (numbered from 0 to 9). f0 searches the nearest label 0 forward, b9
the nearest label backward. Anyway, that's up to the programmer wether he
wants to use this feature or not.

An advantage of this mechanism is that it gives you macro local labels (can
dasm do this ? don't think so...) for free.
