I'm not exactly sure what you're suggesting here, so I'm guessing
exception system at the syntactic computation level.

I think a complete exception mechanism for syntactic computations is
overdoing it a _little_ much in this initial SRFI for them.  Leave that
for a later SRFI, and I think a SYNTAX-DEBUG-MESSAGE is plenty for now.
