      Description

      Javadoc and specifically the doclet has inconsistent exception handling,
      for instance some exceptions are consumed by javadoc, and some are wrapped as DocletAbortException, and some are exposed directly with a stacktrace.

      There must be consistent handling with a terse message or the cause, but there also must be a flag by which more information can be gathered.
