Me too (nice 'find' Niall;) ...but then again that may be because I'm
'into' the subject so I know what is meant by it. From the POV of a 'new

memorize' an overly verbose but more obvious name like result_or_error
or fallible_result that I currently use in Err might be 'better'

spiritual devastation is more likely to come from an enemy with a 
smiling face than from one whose countenance exudes suspicion and hate."
