Description
Martin Buchholz brought up a very good point.  Suppose a method documents that
it throws A and B, where B is a subclass of A.  If an overriden method only has 
A in the throws clause, the doclet should inherit @throws documentation for A 
and B.  Although B is not explicitely in the throws clause, it is a subclass of 
A so it is still checked.
