Note: "new" expects you to return $self or raise an exception. See "_croak", and Carp.

_croak

Raise an exception using croak from Carp, eg:

    $self->_croak( 'why me?', 'aaarrgh!' );

May also be called as a class method.

    $class->_croak( 'this works too' );

_confess

Raise an exception using confess from Carp, eg:

    $self->_confess( 'why me?', 'aaarrgh!' );

May also be called as a class method.

    $class->_confess( 'this works too' );
