Before we think about any of the fairly complicated systems suggested for
backcompat, we should find out how much breakage we'd cause by doing the
simplest thing that could possibly work.

We should apply a patch that does nothing but make internal errors become
objects with overloaded stringification.  Then we can see how much of the core
tests, and of the CPAN, breaks.  We may be surprised by the results.
