How should I do this?

I now have something that works.

After reading enough of the Scala DSL unit tests, I added the following to my route builder:

	handle[Exception] {
	  log(LoggingLevel.ERROR, "${id} ${exception}")

It doesn't appear to be necessary to call maximumRedeliveries(0) on handle, since I don't
get retries when I do this.

This is not ideal because I would prefer this to be a single statement, e.g. using a custom
component, to be able to customise the log output, and to include the stack trace. I may get
to those things, but I've run out of time for now.
