Speaking of which, and surely a rats nest but one that's worth at
least bringing up: does anyone think there is more to be standardized
in the area of exceptions/diagnostics than just the warning/error/fatal
distinction we have now?
To elaborate a bit: normally, one wants to catch exceptions and
recover from them to some degree. Different exception, different
recovery -- if the peer closed the socket cleanly, there's probably
been no error, but other sorts of I/O exceptions are trouble. There
might be such issues with XML too; probably will be, over time.
I can't think of any such issues related to parsing XML, at least
right now I can't, but I'd like to know if anyone else has any.
