Indeed: when you look into the tiger's eyes,

It does so by means of a one-liner as to avoid being disruptive
(while still offering condensed feedback, which often is enough).
DATA is the error; FUN is where it occurred.
The errors are logged in the buffer `error-buffer-name'.
To list them, use `errors'.
To use this function, set `command-error-function' to:
\(lambda \(&rest args\) \(apply #'say-and-log-error args\)"
