in thread Exceptions vs Context Objects

I understand that. It's a matter of how complex he wants to make it for those that write the extensions. They can die with a string or with a blessed object. The advantage to the object approach is that he can also manage the "just how serious is this error" question, as well.

True exception handling is one thing I like about other (more pompous) languages. Sometimes I really miss it in Perl...
