The JRE has to provide enough information at the point of failure for us
to be able to determine the cause.  I've always thought that the stack
trace is particularly weak in existing implementations of Java, given
that the VM can introspect on the methods, arguments, heap, etc. all you
get is a very basic stack walk to figure out the cause of failure.
