From: Han-Wen Nienhuys <hanwen@google.com>

The reftable/ directory is structured as a library, so it cannot
crash on misuse. Instead, it returns an error codes.

In addition, the error code can be used to signal conditions from lower levels
of the library to be handled by higher levels of the library. For example, a
transaction might legitimately write an empty reftable file, but in that case,
we'd want to shortcut the transaction overhead.
