Identifying rsync errors programmatically

Can anyone give me a canonical list of all the possible rsync error
messages? I have a script which reads and parses the rsync verbose
output with progress so as to output a rather more customer-friendly
output and log during the process, and I'm having some difficulty making
sure I successfully pass on all error codes WITHOUT passing through the
occasional file that has "fail" or "error" in the name.
If anybody has already met this challenge and has a really good filter,
or can just tell me what all the various rsync errors look like so that
I can write one myself with confidence, it would be very helpful indeed.
... I would also humbly suggest STANDARDIZING rsync error outputs in a
future version, so that perhaps they all begain with "rsync error: " or
some other easily identifiable string. Right now they're, well, all
over the place.
