Exactly Ben, except when PHP fails, even with a Fatal Error, the page has status 200, we need to understand which call failed between hundreds of potential calls in the debugger, and errors could pass silently.
With Formaldehyde, accordingly with your predefined error_reporting level, above situation will never happen, and the entire process, without changing anything, will be much simpler, as Ben already described. So yes Tedd, you did not even read what is Formaldehyde about ... please try to understand it before other comments, maybe you'll discover it's extremely simple, and hopefully useful.
