Mhmm.  This is too hars harsh.  I would rather simply stop
interpretation of delta instructions but let everything else work.
For example, IUP[xy] could be called within conditionals, and it would
be bad if the following `EIF' doesn't get interpreted, causing
unwarranted execution failures.

Should execution errors be avoided in general? I'm throwing an error in ALIGNRP after IUP[x] and IUP[y] (thereby stopping execution, thereby preventing distortion) and noticed that quite a few errors pile up for Arial, DejaVu, etc. Should I instead define a new "error" that simply stops execution and returns success?
