/** The InternalErr class is used to signal that somewhere inside libdap a
    software fault was found. This class wraps the message text in some
    boiler plate that asks the error be reported to us (tech support).

    NB: This class Adds some text to the message and might, in the future,
    hold information not also held in Error. However, all Error objects
    thrown on the server-side of libdap that cannot be resolved (and that's all
    of them for now, 5/3/99 jhrg) will be sent to the client-side <i>using
    Error objects</i>. That is, the information recorded in an InternalErr
    object will be sent by calling the <tt>print(...)</tt> mfunc of Error.

    @brief A class for software fault reporting.
