This is exactly NOT what I am interested in though!! For me this is a
function of debugger/tools. I specifically want to build up context for
a human-readable message to explain why some process failed to the user
of the software.
The difference is error-handling as opposed to bug-tracking, and it
could be there are two libraries (maybe relying on a common subset of
behaviour) lurking here. I'm not sure which of these two problems
Trevor was proposing to address, but think it is important such a
distinction is made early.
