Have you tested this?  I believe the functionality you desire (site
alerts the user to the error but generally continues to work) is
already available.  There may be some specific cases where that is not
the case but I know that haven't found any yet.

I just used the following code in a node that was formatted with the
php input filter:
print("this is fine");
print("this is surely borken"

And got the following result:

"Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ';' in
/home/.beanor/knaddiso/uagdse.com/includes/common.inc(1175) : eval()'d
code on line 7"

The rest of the site works fine.

Which version are you using?
