I wish @Eval returned errors much like other @Functions

When I stuck @Eval in a translation formula, it seemed like it'd work great. But its error handling seems off.
When I set an @Eval result to a variable, as in
Tmp := @Eval("@Error");
I would like the error returned into the tmp variable. Right now it seems @formula execution stops at that line, and the translation formula doesnt change anything.
You can think of the impact of this situation when you write a configurable formula and allow different groups to modify it for theirmown uses. The formula stops if any error is returned.
Theres one important exception to this, where execution should still stop, and so continue to work like normal @formula -- where an @Prompt or dialog is cancelled.
