I don't think it was that way with the initial change, but after your 
subsequent work with the lower level infrastructure it definitely should 
be reverted.

Correct, the addition of the 'throw' was the only real functional 
change.  The rest are just changes to cause errors to go through the 
interface in the 'Debug' class, with the idea being that it would be 
good for all exceptions for which we do nothing more than print 
diagnostics, we should at least pass through a common interface so that 
in the future we can either shunt/disable the reported stacktraces. 
Additionally, this allows one to set method breakpoints in a JVM 
debugger to examine these stacktraces when they are thrown, which was 
helpful in looking at the Go problem.

Please revert the throw when you get a chance.  If I have time later 
today, I'll do it myself (but it looks like a busy day at work).
