Basically you want a complete description of every error case in GnuPG.
That is not going to happenn given the sheer amount of checks we do.
There is this --audit feature I am working on and if this certain error
will occur more often, it makes sense to add specific support for this.

FWIW, I started to write a list of error code usages in GnuPG et al.
This will take quite some time to finish but eventualy if provide a
useful cross reference.
