I spent a bit of time going through the existing spec to get the various 
exception cases into my head. I think my concerns and suggestion to keep 
this consistent with the relative bulk get/set methods were incorrect 
and that IOOBE is actually the right exception. The methods that I think 
settle this debate is the absolute get/put methods defined by ByteBuffer 
for reading/writing primitive values. As an example getLong(index) 
throws IOOBE if the index is not smaller than the limit minus seven. 
Sorry for wasting your time on Buffer*flowException, they only come into 
the picture for methods that need to change the position.
