Utility for use with errors or exceptions.
public enum Throwables {
Returns the root cause of the given throwable, or null if the given throwable is null. If the root cause is over 1000 level deep, the original throwable will be returned defensively as this is heuristically considered a circular reference, however unlikely.
    public static Throwable getRootCause(Throwable orig) {
        if (orig == null)
            return orig;
        Throwable t = orig;
        // defend against (malicious?) circularity
