I don't think it's worth the verbosity. Other programs don't do this,
and it seems to optimize for the uncommon case (where the error message
is non-obvious, and the user would think to use google, and google would
actually find something useful given the error code, and google wouldn't
find something useful given the error message) at the expense of
obfuscating the common case.
