We have a couple of Simon's, he means me ;-)

I have no objection to .error and although I'm not a great fan of warnings
(if its worth saying - its usually worth an error. ;-) I don't have
any objection to haveing .warn (.warning ?) too, but since any change
to make has the potential to hose someone, want to see if there is 
support from other quarters before looking at cleanup up and adding this
