Oh right, yeah, just like with state_t, you'll actually need to run it.

Just like state_t, error_t actually results in the value of the monad
being a fun. Thus you need to run it. state_t has exec, eval and run,
depending on whether you want the transformed state, value or both back,
but error_t just needs run, as its not doing as much.

Of course, you can have multiple transforms. Consider the difference

M = state_t:new(error_t:new(identity_m))


M = error_t:new(state_t:new(identity_m))
