I think that the first bit would be possible, however, I'd have to test
how easy it would be to actually catch the error here. I think that
there could be some engine trickery involved here.

That's correct - it tries to make the connection in the first execute()
- which is usually the body of the script.

I think a feature request would be the best thing here. I'm a bit
