   Appenders may delegate their error handling to
   <code>ErrorHandlers</code>.

   <p>Error handling is a particularly tedious to get right because by
   definition errors are hard to predict and to reproduce. 


   <p>Please take the time to contact the author in case you discover
   that errors are not properly handled. You are most welcome to
   suggest new error handling policies or criticize existing policies.
