Well, mapping all errors (including C ones and windows-specific ones) to 
a common set would be extremely useful for developers indeed.
I guess some advanced windows errors will never have equivalents 
elsewhere, but does anyone know an error code set which would be 
relevant to cover all memorty, filesystem, io and locking aspects ?
