Re: Sanity check: removing src_err

A thought; how about having a SVN_EXTERNAL error code. So, a program
could traverse the errors looking for SVN_EXTERNA if it needs to get at
it later. This would allow me to put anything I want in there. Chars too!
When you want to keep a src err simply create a SVN_EXTERNAL wrapped by
whatever the SVN_MAPPING would be?
So I could create a error like "ORA-0001". Or "MySql-0001". I guess I
can do this anyway. But it seems nice to identify certain errors as
"from external sources".
