 You mean, you cannot 'return' from a function without generating an
 error message? Elisp doesn't have a straight 'return' statement?

Yes.  But the Common Lisp emulaton library has both `return' and `return-from'.

Just add this to your .emacs file:

(require 'cl)

 Actually coming from the vim world, all these error messages are sort
 of strange. For a person used to just a beep, after some time, these
 messages can get into your head.


 There should be some option for advanced users to turn off -all-
 error messages; they do cause certain discomfort. But I guess, that
 is not trivially possible. I will just have to rewrite those
 functions without those error messages...  That will mean a lot of
 rewrite though....

Why don't you just rewrite/advise the `error' and/or `signal' function?
