Sorry, I don't understand what you mean. The constructor is not throwing 
an exception in this case. The issue I am concerned with is that the 
Websocket object can potentially be used before it has been configured 
with event handlers, although it sounds like that may not be an issue in 

To my mind there are two solutions: include an event-handler collection 
as a parameter on all the constructor methods, or separate the open() 
call out from the constructor. For my library I think I'll opt for the 
latter option.
