A cause can also be failure to update from source control (eg CVS), a
problem with the xml definitions, an internal error within gump, or
something similar. There can be multiple causes (eg multiple failed
dependencies). Think of this as a sort of "lightweight exception stack

*but*, for now, it might indeed be a good idea to just look for one
dependency that caused a problem and use that. It can be generalized later.
