Not sure what you mean
I never had to uses error flags and statuses for anything like this.
In my experience prohibiting return (and continue and break) never ruined that "clean flow" but always improved it. And without using stuff like ugly flags and statuses.
In our coding guidelines the return is prohibited, and since this was introduced we saw the time needed for maintenance and bugfixing dropped noticable.
And yes, exceptions are not to be used for program flow, that is very true.
