What about the following:

Step 1: library for standalone rebase

Every exported library function sets an error with SetLastError() and returns a
false condition, so a user could inspect this with GetLastError().
If the library must be debugged set SetImageHlpDebug(1) to enable debug message

Step 2:  library in setup.exe
add exception handling enabled by a -D option.

Step 1 is already in already supported.
