Taking Serge's comments on board I'd say that Matcher.match and
mailet.service should throw *both* but only MailetException should be
raised in a Mailet or Matcher.

As for Matcher.init I'd probably lean towards MailetException only as we
don't really expect this method to be carrying out any messaging tasks.

But I'm open to persuasion.
