InterruptedIOException has proven both problematic to implement and difficult
to use. Among Sun's Java implementations, only the Solaris version has
implemented the throwing of this exception when a thread blocked in an I/O
operation is interrupted via the Thread.interrupt() method. It is very
difficult, if not impossible, to implement this functionality on Win32 (see,
e.g., 4154947) and on some other Unix variants. InterruptedIOException should
therefore not be a required part of the J2SE platform specification, and the
relevant Javadoc should be updated to reflect this.
