:| Okay, I'm done for now.  A final note: "with handler" is there for
:| readability.  You can reclaim one of the keywords if you like, but
:| I think it will make the catch construct less readable for new
:| programmers (although "handler" alone is pretty reasonable).

I think 'catch {} with {}' is a lot more readable than
        'catch {} handler {}'.

My vote for the former.

To whomever's listening/hacking...
