Whats the correct exception to throw for an index out of bounds. Ruby/irb shows it as IndexError:
>> [1].insert(-10, 'boo')
IndexError: index -9 out of array
from (irb):6:in `insert'
from (irb):6

Should be able to throw an IndexError. I declared the whole hierarchy of Ruby exceptions, except Errno::*.

(Catching is slightly more difficult if you want it to be fast.)

Nope, the problems as evident in #36 will also mess with this. Awesome.

Waiting on Parrot TT#909 now.
