/**
 * Thrown when a bug is detected in the plugins code.
 * <p>
 * This class is intended to be used in assertion statements, similar to
 * the way that java 1.4's native assertion mechanism is used. However there
 * is a difference: when a java 1.4 assertion fails, an AssertionError
 * is thrown, which is a subclass of Error; here, the PluginAssertionFailure
 * class extends RuntimeException rather than Error.
 * <p>
 * This difference in design is because throwing Error objects is not
 * good in a container-based architecture.
 * <p>
 * Example:
 * <pre>
 *   if (impossibleCondition) {
 *     throw new PluginAssertionFailure(
 *       "internal error: impossible condition is true");
 *   }
 * </pre> 
 * <p>
 * Note that PluginAssertionFailure should <i>not be thrown when user 
 * input is bad, or when code external to the Digester module passes invalid 
 * parameters to a plugins method. It should be used only in checks for 
 * problems which indicate internal bugs within the plugins module.
 *
 * @since 1.6
