I'm surprised you can have a tales expression after the "|".

I think that this is a bad idea, especially since you didn't
even say what "defer" does, which, I guess, is in keeping with
it's undocumentedness. :)
I also didn't think that "|" caught *all* exceptions. Does it?
I think the right answer to this question is to write a Python script
and call the script from tal.
