just thinking a simple solution would be push markers onto the stack,
something goes wrong pop and discard till the marker is found.

markers would have a "safe here" with a number akin to the depth of the tree.

i.e. marker #1 at the beginning, #2 at the first branch, #3 at third...
- if it fails roll (pop) back to last marker
- but then need to decide: are we recovered [enough] here go back another level?

second part is hardest - sometimes an error shows 1 message and other times a whole page of subsequent and possibly incorrect/inappropriate messages - even the best compilers can do that.
(missing/extra quotes and close braces are common classics, fore sure they make FSM's run like bulls in a china shop.)

how far to roll back depends how blunt you want recovery, even then there's some things you just cant fix anymore.


already reduced input to handle for missing/extra right hands pushing "ok to here" markers should recover most.
after many otherwise intelligent sounding suggestions that achieved nothing the nice folks at Technet said the only solution was to low level format my hard disk then reinstall my signature. Sadly, this still didn't fix the issue!
