The fixes are exactly what I was hoping for, thanks!

Yes, I think it would help. Especially if they are scattered around the
code, someone intimate with the code would be the best one to make the necessary
changes. I'd like to store a very short unique identifier for every error
class reported and that would go for fatal errors too. I could intercept
those messages and create my own codes, but it would be easier (and maybe
for others) if they were already there.
