It has been fully integrated. All error messages are passed through 
FEcondition() or FEerror(), and then they jump to the si::universal-
error-handler function, which is implemented in src/clos/conditions.lsp
This file belonged to the original ECoLisp, it is Kent Pitman´s 
implementation but it was not integrated in ECoLisp as much as it is 

The problem is that the core C library knows little about CLOS and 
therefore the conditions.lsp file can only be loaded at the end, after 
the lisp library, PCL and the compiler have been loaded.
