The newly added parts in <info:(elisp) Handling Errors> mention that
with-demoted-errors is implemented in terms of condition-case-no-debug,
but this leaves me wondering why, in this or other cases, this should be
better than using condition-case with the `debug' pseudo-condition, viz.

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
(defmacro with-demoted-errors (&rest body)
  "Run BODY and demote any errors to simple messages.
If `debug-on-error' is non-nil, run BODY without catching its errors.
This is to be used around code which is not expected to signal an error
but which should be robust in the unexpected case that an error is signaled."
  (declare (debug t) (indent 0))
  (let ((err (make-symbol "err")))
    `(condition-case ,err
         (progn ,@body)
       ((debug error) (message "Error: %S" ,err) nil))))
