Since we seems to have consensus that the 'err' value means ERR, and
other codes will be added later.

The config value should likewise be the result code, uppercase "ERR",
and the wording "responded with an error" be "responded with ERR". That
makes it crystal clear that whatever the helper ERR handling is will happen.

If there are no further objections, I will apply it tomorrow (~12hrs)
with the above change.
