Anyone hung up on goto should learn that you can write the same code with:

do {
   if (something fails) {


} while (false);

/* cleanup code goes here */

This has no goto, but it has exactly the same failure modes as the
goto-laden code (btw, if you're looking for a "goto cleanup;" equivalent in
Java, this is how you do it).

I believe the real issue here remains that writing *and testing* security
code is hard. And re-implementing an essential security library for license
purity is, bluntly, foolish.
