It would be great if a subroutine facility was added. This would enable programs to be more complex without them getting so long that they disappear off the bottom of the screen.

I agree. But you get into a whole new class of data:parameters and local variables.
Maybe a simpler approach would be to allow the use of “include” files. This would allow code to be written once only, and referenced.
If you allowed ‘folding’ of the program, so that whole syntactically complete chunks could be optionally seen as a single box, then this would get over the “fall off the bottom” problem.

If it can be done, it would be fantastic to have sub routines and would make the Crumble a much more powerful device.
