    This is indeed better. However, now you are logging it as an info message, and then making
a new exception.
    If you log something, and then throw an exception, I would say the log level should be
warn because you are delegating the handling of the exception to the callers.
    In addition, when you make a new exception out of an existing exception you should include
the original exception as the cause of the new exception.
    In this case you are using two exception as the cause `e and ex`. 
    Let us think of a way of doing this better:
    * The first exception `ex` is being handled here. So I would say, first thing is to log
it as an error (`s_logger.error("failed to do something", ex)`). This way we explain what
failed and present the cause in the logs.
    * Then we handle that exception (`ex`) and we might get a second one (`e`). 
    * This second one we don't want to handle here, and we will bubble it up wrapped in a
new exception. So then we log `e` as a warning (`s_logger.warn("failed to do something else,
namely handing the previous excpetion", e)`), and then we wrap it in  a new exception and
throw it (`throw new NiciraNvpApiException("probably the same message we set in the warn log",
    What do you think? Does this make sense to you?
