  1. StorageException should include information on relevant entities

    When operating on tables and blobs and something goes wrong, Azure throws a `StorageException`.

    `.RequestInformation.ExtendedErrorInformation` will give you a bit of information about what went wrong, such as this when trying to insert a duplicate key into a table:

    `The specified entity already exists`

    But it doesn't tell you *which* entities the failure relates to. It would be useful for StorageException to include the Partition Key and Row Key of related entities.

      • port Data Movement Library to java

        Not sure if this would require porting AzCopy to Java/Linux as well, but it would be useful.

        • Storage: IListBlobItem is way to large

          IListBlobItem contains 6 Uri objects (including contained objects), and then another IListBlobItem for any Parent items that might be available, all the way up to the root.

          All 6 of the Uri objects contained in IListBlobItem are basically the same. That is, they might differ if the specify the primary or the secondary storage or something like that.

          Since all the Uri:s are made public by get-based properties it should be possible to introduce a base class that implements IListBlobItem and store the information necessary to provide all the different urls as separate components, and then use these base components…

          • The .NET client library should support TransactionScope

            Often when doing batch processing you may want a all or nothing approach when uploading to blob storage with multiple files. In this situation it would be very useful if the .NET Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Storage.Blob classes supported being within a System.Transactions.TransactionScope.

            My proposal for behavior is if there was a ambient transaction during a blob operation it should support at minimum ReadUncommited transaction isolation (Higher levels of isolation could be supported via existing locking/leasing mechanisms in blob storage).

            Any overwrite operation will snapshot the previous blob, if the transaction is rolled back the snapshot is promoted back to the main data, if…
