Except that now every method exposed has to have a particular
signature.  I personally would rather see us use a Map as what Andrew
suggested, and I really don't want this to happen.  This is going to
cause a lot more problems than it's going to solve since plugins that
already throw exceptions may end up having it caught by the try/catch
which will surround this whole thing.  This is a BIG change in the
API, and I don't think your reason justifies breaking every plugin
that currently exists.
