it looks like this already exists, sort-of.

if a check function sets EXEC_DESTR, and there's an error, the code
returns immediately.

EXEC_DESTR doesn't exactly have the name that one would like for this
purpose, but functionality-wise it should be OK.

that seems like a better solution than, say, teaching the script code
to avoid lots of random binary formats...
