Re-reading the commit, and in particular the comment, it
sounds like you have not fixed the larger issue I am trying
to flag, quoting the commit comment:

i.e. The fall back action in my MIRA4 and BLAST+ recipes
where I use "false" to raise an error should now be treated
as an error (rather than as before being a silent failure).
That's progress :)

Given the current behaviour of switching to the default
action if the platform specific action fails (which I think is
unwise), does the Tool Shed clean up the failed platform
specific installation before attempting the default action?
e.g. The failed action may have downloaded and unzipped
some files which could interfere.
