[Patch] Handle Throwables, Exceptinos and Errors as complex types

           Summary: [Patch] Handle Throwables, Exceptinos and Errors as
                    complex types
           Product: Commons
           Version: Nightly Builds
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: Betwixt
        AssignedTo: commons-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: cgaffga@triplemind.com


I needed to serialize some exception instances to XML and was surprised that 
betwixt handles them as primitive type (because they are under 'java.lang.'). 

I needed a detailed output for the cause property of the exceptions instead 
just a string representation. So I patched the current version (2004-09-25) of 
betwixt to handle types starting with 'java.lang.' and ending 
with 'Exception', 'Error' or 'Throwable' as complex.

So I get nice XML for ex.getCause():

    <cause>
      <message>a cause</message>
      <stack-trace>
        <step>
          <class-name>com.triplemind.test.TestBetwixt</class-name>
          <file-name>TestBetwixt.java</file-name>
          <line-number>28</line-number>
          <method-name>method</method-name>
        </step>
        <step>
          <class-name>com.triplemind.test.TestBetwixt</class-name>
          <file-name>TestBetwixt.java</file-name>
          <line-number>68</line-number>
          <method-name>main</method-name>
        </step>
      </stack-trace>
      <cause>
        <message>/ by zero</message>
        <stack-trace>
          <class-name>com.triplemind.test.TestBetwixt</class-name>
          <file-name>TestBetwixt.java</file-name>
          <line-number>25</line-number>
          <method-name>method</method-name>
        </stack-trace>
        <stack-trace>
          <class-name>com.triplemind.test.TestBetwixt</class-name>
          <file-name>TestBetwixt.java</file-name>
          <line-number>68</line-number>
          <method-name>main</method-name>
        </stack-trace>
      </cause>
    </cause>

I hope this functionality is of general interest and will find it's way into 
the next release of betwixt.
