I'll agree it is a relatively minor point, but if the only reason is
"otherwise, other IOExceptions will have to tunnel" then it is a truly
horrible idea which at its extreme boils down to 'Lets just throw Exception
so that no exceptions are tunneled'. Perhaps there is a more cogent
argument to made about it?
