try is basically an eval.  The problem is that there isn't an 
exception.  Embperl catches the exception in it's eval, logs it to 
apache, and then returns with Error() set to some value.  As a result 
I've lost the object that I associated with the error I threw.  Also, 
although I can recover the error text using Embperl's internal array 
of error messages that have been generated, there doesn't appear to 
be any way to clear that array.

I'm not sure which upsets me more: that people are so unwilling to accept
responsibility for their own actions, or that they are so eager to regulate
everyone else's.
