OUCH - that's totally the wrong conclusion. so now inside a library you want
to have the messages coded in english, spanish, german, quichua, etc each
in their respectiv character sets? oh and unicode too? That job would never end
and be pointless besides.

Take the string out by and use the enums as keys.

We can't accomodate someone who doesn't handle the possible exceptions
by including strings in every posible locale.
