	This is how Sun (I refuse to acknowledge that "other company") built SMF.  It would give
you a short error, but provide a URL that would point to sun.com for more info.  (i.e. http://sun.com/msg/SMF-8000-05
, now locked behind Larry's boat money generator).

	In the Hadoop case, we would likely want to provide a base set that folks could install and
modify locally.  For example, what may be an XYZ error generically may be more indicative
of a problem with our local SerDe's.  Putting it on the wiki would be a good thing, yes, but
I worry about local tribal knowledge spilling into it. 

	I dunno. Just thinking out loud.
