Simple errors carry an explanatory message, file errors do not; for this
reason most errors signaled by ECL are mixins of simple-error and some more
fundamental class.

In principle the fact that the condition is signaled as a descendent of
file-error and not a file-error instance should not be a problem, provided
the user does not assume unspecified behavior.
