Follow-up Comment #1:

There is a reasonably large number of situations in which this can happen.

The benefit to the user in enumerating them in the documentation is, IMHO,
outweighed by 
(a) the maintenance burden in keeping such a list up-to-date
(b) the downsides for the user of this list being sometimes out-of-date (and
reference material which is out-of-date is unuseful to the user if it's not

You can seem some of the cases where this happens as the call sites of the
functions "die" and "fatal_target_file_error".

IOW, I don't think this should be documented.
