+of @code{cluck}, @code{confess}, and @code{longmess} that context is a
+summary of every call in the call-stack.  For a shorter message you can use
address@hidden or @code{croak} which report the error as being from where your
+module was called.  There is no guarantee that that is where the error was,
+but it is a good educated guess.")
