It is basically impossible to do so without following the route Jim
Blandy took: a replacement error syntax.  Existing stubs use them
wildly inconsistently.

I'd need to see a description of what problem the patch you received
was fixing to say more - but I can't think of a place where GDB
changes behavior based on which number follows "E".
