   (an error associated with an index), so there is no need to hide its
 - Add an Unwrap method to access the underlying error.
 - Say explicitly that the error returned from Instantiate may wrap
   *ArgumentError. There is no need to commit to an API that always
   returns an error with dynamic type *ArgumentError.
