Hi Rich,

Thanks for the quick review.

I'll be happy to fix all of the uses of error -- and similar wrapper
functions -- but in a separate patch.  However, note that this is a
general problem: the vast majority of uses of error (at least in that
file) currently use NULL as the first parameter, even when there's a
usable "conn" in scope.
