> I don't see a way now to cancel script execution with some kind of error. Unfortunately
it's not possible to just throw an exception from some method as this will rely on current
settings of context/engine *strictness* and *verboseness*. Using InterruptedException for
this purpose is not an option because I think it has special meaning of cancelling the current
thread execution. Yet the task I beleive is quite common - to inform the executing environment
that the script has encountered some unavoidable situation and can not continue. Just like
*return* statement but returning not a value but an error. 
> For this purpose we can simply introduce some new type of exception, for example 
> {code}
>     public static class Error extends JexlException {
>     ...
> {code}
> and by throwing it from any method the JexlEngine will terminate the current script execution
regardless of strictness/verboseness. May be this task even deserves to have a special operator,
for example 
> {code}
> raise 'Something has happended';
> {code}
