Specific exception for "the server failed to allocate memory"

Reported by: Richard Owned by: Tom Hughes

It would be good if there were a specific exception for "failed to allocate memory", so that whichways could trap it. At present any failure in whichways tells the user to e-mail me, which is good for Potlatch bugs, but not so good when it's a generic server problem.

It's not really possible as there is not a single way in which memory allocation failures manifest themselves that can be trapped - it all depends where the failure happens as ruby, the ruby libxml bindings, libxml itself, the ruby postgres bindings, and the postgres client library itself will all behave differently.
