public abstract class NestedRuntimeException extends RuntimeException
Handy class for wrapping runtime Exceptions with a root cause. This class is abstract to force the programmer to extend the class.

The similarity between this class and the NestedCheckedException class is unavoidable, as Java forces these two classes to have different superclasses (ah, the inflexibility of concrete inheritance!).
