Okay Simo,

I've updated the patchset in my private repo (branch ldb_tools):
- I'm now returning "-1" on generic errors - where a LDB error does not 
really fit. As an exception I've left the "ldbedit" tool since the 
conversion to LDB errors there is very complicated
- Otherwise the LDB error code is returned
