True, but definitely NOT TO BE RECOMMENDED!!! Just to start with,
standard code loading stops working. It also encourages a horrible,
incomprehensible programming style and every time the error handler is
invoked you get a huge processing overhead.
I had to get rid of the "Someone who once implemented inheritance"
this way from the project concerned before I could return it to some
limitted form of sanity.
