This is a slight aside, but did you consider Common-Lisp's condition
system? Overview here:
"Handling in the Context of the Signaler
A key capability provided by Common Lisp is the fact that, at
the most primitive level, handling can be done in the dynamic
context of the signaler, while certain very critical dynamic
state information is still available that would be lost if a
stack unwind happened before running the handler."
