You are right, I missed it; sorry.

The reason I asked is that the names are similar to C constants EINTR and 
EAGAIN.  These are defined to system-dependent constant values which are 
put into the global variable `errno' whenever the respective problems 
happen.  If these are indeed errno values, they shouldn't be in Lisp, 
because the underlying C library can change the values (though most 
libraries don't).
