If the OakException wraps a RepositoryException, we extract that one and 
rethrow it, it will come with an incorrect stack trace, no? So it seems 
we need to re-wrap.

It seems we're converging on

- OakException extends RuntimeException

- OakExpception can carry RepositoryException

Should we start with that, and see how this works? (Open a issue for it?)

Best regards, Julian
