Yes, eventually found it. Also dmd2, dmd\src\druntime\src\compiler\dmd\object_.d. I was looking because I remembered seeing once a distinction being made between class Exception, and class Error

These seem to be defined identically - is one of them defunct?

I believe the former is automatically generated from the latter one.

They're base classes for different categories of errors, somewhat like
in Java.  See core/exception.di for a run-down.
