[Grok-dev] Documenting error codes

This might be a strange idea, but I find that a lot of the problems I  
encounter are solved by searching on parts of the error message.  
However, error messages tend to have custom variable names etc. so  
they aren't perfect search queries.

Would it be practical to create a searchable index of error messages  
where the error messages are represented as RegExp queries?

Instead of searching the index with "my" error message, the index  
searches my error message using the list of RegExp to see if one of  
them matches. That way maybe one could eventually perform the search  
directly in the error trace. Thus giving context sensitive help right  
when and where it is needed the most...
