I would think for 6.0, that breaking support for the old 2.0.x series
would be ok. This is a broken thing though in the old scripts and I
would think warrants an quick update to stable (until a new stable takes
it's place which is a way off)

Yea, that could work. What about a generic error handler function in
functions? That way you only have to code one main error handler, and
then pass parameters to it.
