Sure, no problem. I'll put that on the "to do real soon" list,
and will post here when that happens.

Perhaps. ;-}  Even though I've been inflicting it on innocent live
users for over a decade(!), I'm still not completely decided on how it
really "ought" to work, since that seems to vary considerably depending
on what application and user group it's being used with. E.g., I've
flip-flopped back & forth several times on how to handle exceptions:
Show an (abbreviated) backtrace. or just PRINC the condition? Drop into
the debuuger or just bounce back to the top-level prompt? "It depends",
as they say. For these reasons (and others), it really should be
considered as merely one instance of a general pattern, rather than
any kind of cast-in-stone "library" or "module" that one can just
grab off the shelf and use blindly.  [You have been warned...  ;-}  ]
