True, but you already found a possible answer:

To overcome that problem, I think it would make sense to treat the
"optional" like this: when the expression raises a NameError, if the
variable name that caused the error is an expected argument of the
ZSQLMethod, then this argument was not provided, so do not render the
sqltest tag. Otherwise, we have a real error. In a pythonish algorithm,
that would look like this:
renderedExpr = eval(expr)
except NameError, varName:
if varName in ZSQLMethodArguments:
# "optional" behavior for missing variable
# We have a real error
raise NameError, varName
# render sqltest tag
Do you think that makes sense?
