Description:


raised by the VM when a message is sent to an object and 
is not clear which method to execute.
Such situation may occur when a current selector namespace
imports two namespaces and both define a method with the
requested selector.


Class protocol:

testing
o  isProgramError
redefined in all exceptions which are programmer's errors,
and which should probably not be ignored.
I.e. a global error handler should reject and let a debugger get control.
