The PVCalls spec says that unimplemented commands return ENOTSUPP,
defined as -524. I guess that is why I used ENOTSUPP, but, actually,
this is the return value to the caller, which has nothing to do with the
PVCalls protocol return value. In fact, it could be something entirely
different.

In this case, I think you are correct, it is best to use EOPNOTSUPP.
I'll make the change and retain your Reviewed-by, if that's OK for you.
