Re: New API & Exceptions

Below is quick scetch of what it could look like.
I'm not using typedefs, in case someone wants to
differentiate for whatever reason. If you know of
any more specific standard exceptions that could
be used, please update the list.

class IllegalArgumentException: public std::invalid_argument
class NumberFormatException: public std::invalid_argument
class IllegalStateException: public std::runtime_error
class UnsupportedEncodingException: public std::runtime_error
class ServletException: public std::runtime_error
class IOError: public std::ios_base::failure

I think this covers all exceptions referenced in your public APIs.
