It would be nice if we had more consistent locations to check for feedback, without special cases and provisos. For example, returning a value from a function and a command (forget "for value" and "for error") populate it or the result depending on whether we are using a command or a function. One of the side effects of adding "for value" and "for result" is that some of the error reporting we used to receive if we coded for the incorrect handler type has gone away.
