aut is set of reusable utilities. Each subset of aut should have their own 
exception IMHO. So aut.X should be able to be picked up without any 
dependencies on other unrelated classes.

It has been -1'ed a whole bunch of times so we probably shouldn't switch it 
on ;) I originally wrote the code so that when I wrote the Policy object you 
*could* switch it on if you wanted to but by default it reverts to our 
current behaviour.
