OSX has added the NSError class and is increasingly adding methods which use
this instead of producing exceptions.  The GNUstep code largely leaves NSError
return values unpopulated or minimally populated.

We need to go through the methods which use NSError, and ensure that at least
the most common problems cause an NSError to be returned which matches the
behavior on OSX.

It would be good to provide testcases for the testsuite at the same time.

Difficulty level of this is quite low ... suitable for newcomers to the
project I'd think.
