 I definitely agree with kovshenin here. This should be within add(), and
 we should use add() within the constructor if necessary.

 I think my bigger concern here is that WP_Error objects are not exceptions
 — rarely are they "exceptional." Often, they are used as return values for
 functions that meet some kind of error condition, but that doesn't mean
 every usage meets the level of a deprecated function, notices, or PHP
 errors (see also: https://wordpress.org/plugins/log-deprecated-notices/,

 This is basically the equivalent of logging every time a function returns

 I'd go for a revert here and revisiting this in the future. What problem
 is actually trying to be solved here? What errors are you actually trying
 to track?
