Would this solve the problem ?
... else raise E_PERM or E_PROPNF or E_INVIND...
so set_property_value(me, "description", E_PERM) => return E_PERM
and set_property_value(me, "location", E_PERM) => raise E_PERM
Since all verb should be +d, only catching the error would be needed :-)
Just my $0.02 to a very good idea... (I guess all those who played with MO
got to the same conclusion as Seth :-)
