javafxpackager - exceptions in start

I'm just now looking into using a custom preloader and for that I started
using the javafxpackager command-line tool.  (Normally I manually handle
gettign jfxrt.jar on the classpath, as my app still optionally launches in
a Swing + JFXPanel mode.)

The first thing I noticed is that now when there is a problem I don't get
to see what it is.  Instead of dumping the exceptionb stack trace to stderr
or stdout, I simply get the following message:

Exception in Application start method
Exception while launching application

Um.. thanks... how about some details?

Is this by design, or simply an oversite?
