This becomes pretty painful when the function calls other functions, for
which just relays the error code.
Should we be just documenting the error codes introduced by the function
code, and say that the function returns errors A, B, C plus all the ones
returned by the called functions X, Y, Z?
If not, it becomes hell in maintaining the comments...
