I'm not sure whether I mentioned this - but I think one of the more
useful areas that the Teams could be working on is to get rid of all
the calls to #error:....

It could be that I'm the only one disturbed by this, but we have at
least the possibility to work with exception hierarchies, but I find
myself almost always having to catch Error in exception-handling code,
because that's all the information that comes out of the basic class
