Impd (CVS) has code for printing verbose error messages. I don't recall
whether that's in the A2 release. Here's the code:

void tcl_mess(char *s)
    int result;
    result = Tcl_Eval(tk_myinterp,  s);
    if (result != TCL_OK)
        if (*tk_myinterp->result) {
                Tcl_Eval(tk_myinterp, "global errorInfo; "
		"puts stderr \"Tcl Error: $errorInfo\"");

And something similar for pdgui_doevalfile...

(Note that t_tkcmd.c is bound to disappear from IMPD at some point...)
