I know, but a very detailed one - and one that gets slapped into your

all RFCs that use the three digit error codes explain them.

Here we have a special case, MKDIR for a directory, that already
exists or RMDIR for one that is not there.  Both errors are permanent,

you have to rely on the error codes being returned, the first digit is
not enough in this case.
