The extra character, or using hex, seems worth the future flexibility. We want to be able
to assign new codes, rather than reusing old ones, when error messages change in future versions.

Allocating 50 messages to mod_foo might be fine for now, but in httpd version 4.8 we may have
all new messages. Not sure we can adequately determine how many is enough to allocate.
