Thanks for the remind, Sietse.  That was in the text originally to 
indicate to O'Reilly that they should fill in their standard error 
reporting procedure when the book went to print.  I see no reason for us 
not to fill in our *own* error reporting procedure in the sources, 
though.  If the book ever sees a reprint, O'Reilly can simply amend that 
section again to include their stuff.
