[description of suggested abort() command]

I really do like this idea... there's an equivalent concept in Prolog
if my memory serves.

This, in some sense, is a modification of pass().

pass() says, "call the verb that 'this verb' overrides."
abort() says, "do what would happen if 'this verb' had never matched."
