Good to know, thanks.

Right- I've seen that segfault before, and I don't think it
has anything to do with fallback mode.  IME overload is very 
hairy code, and I try to avoid it whenever possible.  I guess 
it's unavoidable here though because we're creating error
objects instead of making ordinary SVs.

OK, but you'll probably be needing quite a few more
subs (string comparisons, etc.).  Of course more tests
will help flesh all that out ;-)
