      Description

      That would be useful if we got more details about the method which threw the exception. There is a "short" form, which contains these information, but there can be some cases, when we need them separately.

      For example we would write something like this:

      %throwable{className}.%throwable{methodName}:%throwable{lineNumber} %throwable{message}
      

      And we would get this:

      foo.bar.ClassName.main:14 java.lang.ArithmeticException: / by zero
      

      I think we should only modify the ThrowablePatternConverter and ThrowableFormatOptions classes and the documentation. What do you think about it?
