I'd throw it out. The same can be achieved with

    proc = {msg} {web::put $msg}

so there is no added value in it, just more code and exceptions and stuff.

After thinking about it for a while, I tend to agree with David: let
the developer care. if he doesn't want a code block to crash, he's got
to catch it and react properly {if {[catch {do somthing stupid}]}
{web::put "I'm sorry"}}. -> putx should just normaly return as soon as
there is an uncaught error.

It seems there are still tons of fixmes in the mod_websh part of the
code. I think we should make sure that the most important one of those
are fixed: i.e. have a reliable mod_websh for the release. (I haven't
looked at them very specifically yet.)

I'd like to look at some issues when you David are in Zurich next
week: I'll opt for the code freeze after your visit. (But what ever
you can do before that -> all the better.)
