DIAGNOSTICS
       Error: $object is not a collection.

           The first argument is an object, but not of a class which extends
           User::Identity::Collection.

       Error: Cannot create a $type to add this to my collection.

           Some options are specified to create a $type object, which is
           native to this collection.  However, for some reason this failed.

       Error: Cannot load collection module for $type ($class).

           Either the specified $type does not exist, or that module named
           $class returns compilation errors.  If the type as specified in the
           warning is not the name of a package, you specified a nickname
           which was not defined.  Maybe you forgot the 'require' the package
           which defines the nickname.

       Error: Cannot rename $name into $newname: already exists

       Error: Cannot rename $name into $newname: doesn't exist

       Error: Creation of a collection via $class failed.

           The $class did compile, but it was not possible to create an object
           of that class using the options you specified.

       Error: Don't know what type of collection you want to add.

           If you add a collection, it must either by a collection object or a
           list of options which can be used to create a collection object.
           In the latter case, the type of collection must be specified.

       Warning: No collection $name

           The collection with $name does not exist and can not be created.

       Error: Package $package does not implement $method.

           Fatal error: the specific package (or one of its superclasses) does
           not implement this method where it should. This message means that
           some other related classes do implement this method however the
           class at hand does not.  Probably you should investigate this and
           probably inform the author of the package.

       Error: Wrong type of role for $collection: requires a $expect but got a
       $type

           Each $collection groups sets of roles of one specific type
           ($expect).  You cannot add objects of a different $type.
