Summary0004108: better, unified error reporting
DescriptionThe error reporting in the wallet is currently rather ad-hoc, and either
a) a popup
b) a full error page
c) some error indicator on the page

We should probably stick to (c) and have some kind of log for errors that are important to the user (e.g. when a merchant did not accept our payment, but should have accepted it).
TagsNo tags attached.

I'm not sure "uniform" applies, but we really need to have a good strategy for each error. There are different types that require different strategies:

* transient failure (i.e. network down), where we must enable the user
  to retry (i.e. on pay), or auto-retry in background (i.e. for withdraw/refresh)
* malicious failure (where we're SURE who is to blame), where we need to
  record evidence and allow user to export evidence
* internal failure (log and recover, i.e. we double-spent and have proof,
  so either we were compromised or restored from backup)
