While I fully follow your reasoning how 2) is the cleaner and more
correct long-term solution (a real error handling facility), 1) is
probably a more pragmatic approach that doesn't require any code to be
changed and still covers all Pd objects _and_ externals that employ

So, I'm not going to argue against 1). If iemguts or Pd  would provide
something like IOhannes' [canvaserror], I'd totally use it.
