I goofed. I was trying to give an example of what to do to keep from
changing defaultFolder so it would be OK when an external is loaded.
I worded the 'throw' above as if the external was loaded in the "...
blah blah blah ...".
The last line is better like this:
if bad then throw "Error while defaultFolder was changed."
Or whatever is appropriate for the particular situation.
All the more why 'catch' should be optional.
