I have to agree.  Perhaps just as significant, what would happen to a CGI
script that already attempts to do something to direct error output to a
file or mail message the webmaster will see?

Most of my users wouldn't know a traceback (simpler or otherwise) from a
hole in the ground.  I think I have perhaps two users who would understand
that I was trying to create a more readable report.
