No, I meant to write exactly that, to show that _evaluating_ the error in
err is where Rebol "ab ends" as it were, rather than where it "passed out
the left end" as it were.
>> probe err
========^== ; Error occurs at ^ point
The error occurs after 'err is evaluated, as Rebol prepares to enter the
value of 'err as an argument for 'probe.
