Second Grant Report: Structured Error Messages

Permanent link

Progress on my grant for error message is slower than expected, as expected :-). Life and work, though rewarding, take their toll. Also many of my original ideas turned out to be not very good, and got shot down by @Larry (with good reason).

However I did get around to lay out some specification for exceptions in S32::Exception (rendered) - some basic roles, and the relationships between exception, Failure (lazy/unthrown exceptions) and backtraces.

More importantly I think I'm at a point where I could start to actually implement some of that stuff, and use that experience to update the specification.
