Of course, the more information you have about errors the better. I 
don't know about you but it helps me debug my programs.

Okay, so -- as your boss -- I want you to imagine for a day that no 
error message ever shows up, that they all calls to error (external and 
internal) are replaced with

  (random-pick '(... your favorite 100 Scheme values from the running 
program ...))

and off you go. -- Matthias
