Thanks!  I don't remember either.  It might have something to do with
get-call-chain vs print-call-chain, we might've mistakenly thought
that there would be a [get-]error-message since there's also a
print-error-message.

We went back and forth on the call-chain stuff and in the end we decided
it belong in (chicken base) because a call chain is always available and
it has nothing to do with exceptions as such: it's just very often that
you want to know the call chain when an exception is raised, but a call
chain can be requested without having an exception.

When we discussed that, the call chain stuff was listed under
(chicken base), but I now noticed that these are already part of
(chicken condition).  I'm not sure it's worth reverting that again...

Cheers,
Peter
