The current output is good to know that something went wrong, but not what.
Afaik it can be a non-existent file or array - most likely the first. (I
don't know if there are other errors with more advanced options).

Exactly, but a quite useful one.

Yes. Also about that, Ctrl+e while typing gets out of the object. In
Pd-Ext, Ctrl+return closed the object, but didn't escaped it. Which made
keyboard patching a bit more confortable, as one just types Ctrl+1 and
continues patching.
Although adding a new object while editing one also closes the previous
object and moves on, so for some situations continuity is asured.
