> The XMLStreamException in spec stax-api 1.2 is not calling the super(th) or super(msg,
th) for the constructors that take a throwable.   There are two problems this causes:
> 1) The "cause" is never set so the exception.getCause() always returns null and potentially
important information in the cause is discarded.
> 2) For the super(th) one,  no message is set at all.    Thus, all information that could
be useful is lost unless I specifically cast the exception to an XMLStreamException and call
the getNestedException().   Any generic exception handling mechanism would not be able to
provide a useful error message.
