It is a pretty hard balance to get, because we want to allow use of the
perl client against apps which do not implement introspection. If we
treat too many error types as fatal, then we risk making it impossible
to work against apps which don't support introspection. The two error
codes we check for so far are targetted enough that they're not a concern,
but I'm wary of marking more error codes as fatal here.
