Not bad, either. So we have ELIBACC, ELIBBADD, and ENOPKG as

Here's a clear "no". EFAIL is not a useful error message. It's not
even slightly wrong, like EACCES in this case might be, it's entirely
lacking information. What's the accompanying error message? "Something
failed"? "An error occured, but I have no idea what"?
This reminds me of the old awk, which apparently only knew two error
awk: syntax error near line x
awk: bailing out near line x
In which scenario would such an EFAIL be really useful, which wouldn't
be better covered by an error code which contains at least *some*
information about the cause?
