Sorry, sent the last mail without completing my response here.
So, yes there is a difference. But as I explained, I did it that way
because, in my opinion we should not stop as soon as we hit an error
when looking up for a match from among the Python implementations as
there could be a source language implementation. If there were to be
an error invoking a Python implementation, then that is reported via
the relevant functions in valarith.c. All other Python errors are
reported but do not stop GDB from proceeding to evaluate expressions.
