That's what I really need to see in the logs, too.

Using SQLState might be reasonable, but I'd be concerned we'd find cases
where the same standard-specififed SQLState should be sent to the
*client*, despite different underlying causes for the server of
different levels of DBA concern.

I'd rather not suppress logging of user-level errors, etc; they're
important too. It's just necessary to be able to separate them from
internal errors that should never happen when the system is operating
correctly in order to do effective log-based alerting.

After all, I *don't* want to get an SMS whenever the deadlock detector
kicks in and someone's created a database in de_DE so the string pattern
match doesn't kick in.
