We let the BTLs use BTL_ERROR, eventually with some modifications, and we redirect the BTL_ERROR to a more advanced macro including support for orte_show_help? This will require going over all the BTLs, but on the bright side it will give us a 100% consistency on retorting errors.

Otherwise, I'm not sure what we gain as the direct orte_show_help dependency will remain. Or are those calls too specialized to be replaced with BTL_ERROR?

Should this kind of thing wait for OPAL_SOS?

(I mention this because the OPAL_SOS RFC will be sent to devel Real Soon Now...)
