Please define a single base error. At the moment there are two root exceptions:

# lib/psych.rb
RuntimeError > Psych::Exception > Psych::BadAlias

# lib/psych/syntax_error.rb
RuntimeError > Psych::Error > Psych::SyntaxError

If i want to catch all Psych errors, i have to write:

require 'psych'
require 'psych/syntax_error'

rescue Psych::Exception, Psych::Error => e
  omg e

It would be way nicer to just require 'psych' and rescue Psych::Error.
