[Kaffe] java.io.File(Input|Output)Stream question.

Does anyone know what is going on the the Sun docs with reguarding
the constructors for the FileInputStream and FileOutputStream classes?

A file output stream raises an IOException if the file can not be
found but a file input stream raises a FileNotFoundException. What
is going on here? Is this yet another example of a Sun screw-up that
we need to provide a "compatible" implementation of? This also messes
up the FileReader and FileWriter classes. Any thoughts?
