[PD] Ability to access error messages from patch

Just 2 innocent ideas to add to brainstorm,

1.) what about a special subpatch? like pd-try, or just try, it could work
as a normal subpatch, but with a mandatory outlet that would catch errors
for the objects that live inside it

just like we can open a [pd] object or a [clone] object,  [pd-try
something] would be the same but with an added outlet for errors

2.) another idea would be that try just loads the object in its first
argument (and passes the next arguments for that object creation) with an
added outlet if this object throws an error

so you could use [try soundifiler], and this would be a normal soundfiler
that gets one more outlet

i like the catch idea, just thinking about other options too
