Yeah.  Dynamically populating the space of error codes looks pretty
necessary.  Modules loading at runtime need it.

Implies some technique to rondevous with the apr's error code tables
as modules load.

Sadly it would seem to imply a mapping from OS error codes into
APR error codes making APR much less light weight.

Might as well use atoms/symbols for the error codes at that point.

We really need them for keying lots of things: headers, methods, 
new API, and now errors.
