Commit Message

From: John Snow <jsnow@redhat.com>

Rename QAPIError to QAPISourceError, and then create a new QAPIError
class that serves as the basis for all of our other custom exceptions,
without specifying any class properties.

This leaves QAPIError as a package-wide error class that's suitable for
any current or future errors.

(Right now, we don't have any errors that DON'T also want to specify a
Source location, but this MAY change. In these cases, a common abstract
ancestor would be desired.)

Add docstrings to explain the intended function of each error class.
