Subject Re: should strings in exceptions match the reference implementation?
Date Tue, 18 Apr 2006 08:24:12 GMT
I thought my first message in this thread made this clear but obviously not.

I'm not suggesting that code would care if the exception messages are
identical.  I was suggesting that it is probably now quite common for
users to type error messages straight in to google.  Therefore having
messages match those of existing implementations would help our users
find the cause of an exception.

Regards,
 Mark.
