I have never tried this, but if  willin to risk your system go for it. I
would be interested if this idea is all crap or  not.
$error has a prop on it which is a list of all possible errors, and #0 holds
properties called .nothing, .ambiguous match and have the values #-1 etc.
Try edition those and usin $error:generate_error. . . I doubt that it will
work, but will somebody let me know if it does because the is proberbly so
interrupritation between the two, but if it does work . . .
