public abstract class CoreException
extends java.lang.RuntimeException

This is the class from which all exceptions of the core package are descended.

Future plan: to have a stack of messages, rather than a single message. That way, an exception thrown at a low level can have a low-level message associated with it, but if a higher-level function intercepts it, the higher-level function can attach a more meaningful message. But it may turn out that the low-level message was more helpful; a stack would preserve both messages.

If you want the compiler to help you check special cases that you might have missed, copy all the exceptions to your own directory, change "extends RuntimeException" to "extends Exception," modify your CLASSPATH to look first at your own directory, later here. When you compile again, the compiler will give you a huge number of "Exception must be caught or declared as thrown" errors, a small fraction of which will point to special cases you have overlooked.
