Does SELECT-PROP really need to handle errors? I know it should be general, but I think noone really needs that kind of functionality (in that case, one just has to workaroud, maybe creating his own SELECT-PROP). I think Carl made errors Second Class because that's the way they should be --- they are errors after all, and should be handled instead of being passed around (to postpone handling, you have the option to THROW them). If you just want to treat them as values, you really have to DISARM them. It makes sense after all, even if I'd prefer first class errors too, because they're simpler...
