D - Exception strings

One thing that bugs me about exceptions is that toString() returns strings
with all different styles. Some capitalize the first letter in all words,
some just the first; some use complete sentences; etc. I think all these
differences in error messages make your application seem less professional.
I'd like to have a common style. I don't particularly like having every word
capitalized. I think complete sentences would be the best.
Sure this is a pretty silly complaint, but it's better to fix it rather than
just ignore it. :)

best would be, if exceptions would follow the same rules than compiler errors..

because in textpad that would mean i could double click onto the exception and
jump to the piece of code that caused it:D
