One of the issues several of us have been discussing over the last few
months is how to incorporate a mechanism for structured exception
handling into R.  A prototype of one possible approach is available at


It is also available off the developer page,

The package that implements the prototype requires R 1.3.  (It is
mostly R code but needs a few hooks that have been added to R 1.3 to
allow experimenting with this sort of thing).

If you would find this sort of thing useful please give it a try and
let us know if you have any comments or suggestions.
