There comes a point where you have to realize that the command-line client
isn't designed to provide an answer for every question you might have. This
is why we publish a public API in C, Python, Perl, Ruby, Java, .... If you
need to distinguish different error situations at a finer resolution than
works/doesn't-work, perhaps it's time you wrote your own tooling.
