I've just thought of a little bit of feature creep here. Today you can run a
test and state that you expect a build exception string passed in -but how
about you can have some extension of that
expectBuildExtensionStartsWith( ) which expects a build exception which
begins with the
chosen string, but can contain extra test.

this makes it easier to test all those exceptions which include filenames
and things in the error text.
