ZZAlreadyConnectedException.java would work if you just dropped the ZZ
(currently it's exactly 32 characters). And as for
TestSimpleTransientDimInvariants.java, why not just use my thinko above
and call it TestSimpleDimInvariants.java. That SimpleTRANSIENTDim is
meant can be emphasized in the file, I'd say. (Better than dropping the
distinguishing "Invariants" part.)
