    Description

      When inheriting exception documentation, javadoc matches exceptions from an overridden method with those of the overriding method using string names, not even FQNs. This is misguided and leads to incorrect results. We should use appropriate types, not strings. (ThrowsTaglet is "stringly" typed.)
