Yet another email on this thread...oh well. I just wanted to point out
that I like the following notation:

I think having individual error codes defined may be a bit extreme,
but having a notation why we are bailing out is a good idea at least
in the code. I don't want to get too many of these codes, but things
like missing program, bad PKGBUILD, build failure, missing deps, etc.
are all good but not too-specific reasons. Perhaps you could submit a
patch with a brief comment header containing these so people hacking
on makepkg know what they have to choose from?
