OK, Geir, now I understand your concerns about velocity just throwing
Exceptions of the correct type, some time ago.  I thought there was a
VelocityException that everything inherited from.

You might want to consider copying Rafal's TurbineException.  It allows
you to encapsulate other exceptions inside the new one.  You get the
full stack trace for all the exceptions, neatly concatenated, and 
no duplicate text. It is totally awesome.
