It looks like r951219 breaks Python RPC compatibilyt with previous releases
since the "string" type is now part of the `errors` union.

In my case, I already have "string" as part of my errors union (passing back
errors as JSON in some cases) so now my schemas rase SchemaParseExceptions

I'm curious if it's intentional to raise an exception on duplicate types in the
union, if so, what's my best course of action here? Switch to 1.3.3 across the
board all at once while changing my schemas (eek!)?
