Either way using the same tiOPF code, with commit r14937 fpdoc did not
raise any error with the usage of 'label', but r14938 and onwards
does. If fcl-passrc parser 'label' correctly before I don't know - I'm
simply stating that it did not raise an error.

I still say the syntax for modifiers stink! I vote for making them
keywords so they can't be used as identifiers. And I vote that the
syntax for modifiers get fixed. Sometimes you need a semi-colon before
the modifier and sometimes you don't - that's an anomaly, not a syntax
