That's better, but really I want croak() to only give me a one-line
die message:

Also, it doesn't really help, as it just chops off one level.  I really 
want it to go to the end of the stack, even if the number of levels 

Also, the comments in Carp say that CarpLevel is deprecated.

Unfortunately I do care; I want croak()-style output.

The code in my mail is the example, and I tried making that = 0 right 
before the croak().
