Thank you,

Indeed it seems to be the case that it is more like IsFailed() instead of 

If i examine the *grpc_call* 
struct, (accessible through the c++ API 
but using it will require including non-public core lib headers? Which i do 
not want to do.) it has an *grpc_call_final_info* member defined here 
Which includes a *grpc_status_code*  and error message, I do not know if 
these are set on the server side, but this might be something to expose on 
the C/C++ API?
