Bug Description

This fails on python 3.4 if the message kwarg evaluates to False:

because self.__class__.message doesn't exist for exceptions in python 3.4.

You can see the failure here in a unit test that hit this:

    Fix ClientException init when there is no message on py34

    BaseException.message was removed in python 3 per PEP 0352 so if no
    message is passed to the ClientException __init__ it will blow up:

    AttributeError: type object 'ClientException' has no attribute 'message'

    So this change does two things:

    1. Default to 'n/a' for message and details when body['keys'] doesn't
       have a message or details in it (which should be fine since
       from_response defaults to n/a if 'keys' is not in body).
    2. Use getattr for self.__class__.message and default to None if that
       attribute is not set. Arguably we could just remove this and make
       the message kwarg default to 'n/a' in ClientException.__init__ but
       I figured that was more invasive.
