There is an error in your patch, but I'm not going to tell you where. Good luck ;-)

The location-less errors are really annoying, please try to find a way of preserving the location info. It also looks like many of the throws you converted (outside SetTheory) could easily pass a relevant location to PrintFatalError.

Is it possible to get rid of the TGError exception class as well?
