Actually, no.  EGRATUITOUS is for protocol violations.  EIEIO is supposed
to be used only in situations where things seem to indicate an essential
server died (proc, auth).  Of course, any buggy program could have nuked
its send rights so that it perceives the same errors as it would if the
servers had died, even though they haven't.
