It's a nice idea; I may not want to incorporate it into the current 
version, though, as the error handling will become a generic function at 
some point and thus the registration mechanism for it might be quite 
different than for a view.  It will, however, support handling 
non-IWebException errors in any event.

In the meantime, I would use a view name like 'peak.web.error_handler', 
though, to indicate its special nature.
