Tim,

thanks.

yes, i agree this is really a feature request.  in general, as far as i
can see, consistency across languages "at the fringes", is pretty much
"a work in progress" (or not, as the case might be).

if there is ever the chance to detect and propagate errors in :session,
that would be great.  (and, again "in general", trying to reduce the
[reducible] gap between non- and :session, across languages, would be a
nice goal.)

cheers, Greg
