nevertheless, IMO it is important to be nice to the experienced users
What about making debug-on-error=T ignore debug-ignored-errors, while
debug-on-error=anything_but_T_or_NIL respect it?
[this is incompatible with Emacs, and there is no hope to persuade RMS

surprised is there were even a single person supporting this :-]
