It's not documented very well (maybe not at all?) how
to create your own exceptions, what methods are
available for overriding / extending, etc.

Extended the discussion of user-defined exception in the
tutorial (Doc/tut/tut.tex revision 1.150) and added a
reference from the library manual's discussion of the
standard exceptions (Doc/lib/libexcs.tex revision 1.40).
