New patch release 1.8.0p5 of LambdaMOO server

   I hope these do generate compile-time errors and aren't allowed
   through... it would be a travesty if we had to allow expressions that
   would be known to generate runtime errors at compile time.

I dunno, maybe it's not necessary any more, $error in lambdacore for
1.7.9 and before depends upon being able to enter expressions that
could be known to generate runtime errors, such as "1 / 0".  I think
the programmer should be allowed to do something that gives an error
even if it's totally obvious that they are doing so.
