Having experimented a bit, it appears the clients just hang when there
is a repository problem. At least that's what happens at present. So
it may be difficult to generate an error. That doesn't really affect
my view of the solution, I still think manual intervention is the best
solution. It may be that a hanging client is what alerts the user,
rather than an explicit error message.
