My gut tells me that making this work with exceptions would be a dog.
It's the sort of thing that might be fun to play with if the compiler
and eval loop were written in Python, but if I have to hack C to play
with these things, it just becomes tedious.  Still, maybe if I have a
month or two with nothing else to do...


well, take it from an old hand: the only reason it would be easier
to program in C is that you can't easily express complex  problems
in C, so you don't.                 -- Erik Naggum, comp.lang.lisp
