class ErrorMessage(Exception):
    '''Exception type raised from errors.error() and errors.fatal()'''

class AccumulatedErrors(Exception):
    '''Exception type raised from errors.accumulate()'''

class ErrorCollector(object):
    Error handling/logging class. A global instance, errors, is provided for

    Warnings, errors and fatal errors may be logged by calls to the following

    Warnings only send the message on the logging output, while errors and
    fatal errors send the message and throw an ErrorMessage exception. The
    exception, however, may be deferred. See further below.

    Errors may be ignored by calling:

    After calling that function, only fatal errors throw an exception.

    The warnings, errors or fatal errors messages may be augmented with context
    information when a context is provided. Context is defined by a pair
    (filename, linenumber), and may be set with errors.context() used as a
    context manager:
        with errors.context(filename, linenumber):

    Arbitrary nesting is supported, both for errors.context calls:
        with errors.context(filename1, linenumber1):
            with errors.context(filename2, linenumber2):

    as well as for function calls:
        def func():
        with errors.context(filename, linenumber):

    Errors and fatal errors can have their exception thrown at a later time,
    allowing for several different errors to be reported at once before
    throwing. This is achieved with errors.accumulate() as a context manager:
        with errors.accumulate():
            if test1:
            if test2:

    In such cases, a single AccumulatedErrors exception is thrown, but doesn't
    contain information about the exceptions. The logged messages do.
