What you need is not as much error recovery as error reporting. Do 
whatever is necessary so that future bug reports are easier to make. For 
example, when a Tcl command fails, print the command that directly caused 
that error, even when -d is set to 0.

Isn't that what the [catch] command already does ?

But if anything prevents an item from being created, this will necessarily 
cause more errors later, for any tcl command that assumes that the 
creation command worked.
