Hi Joe,

Unfortunately this isn't going to work properly.  Mikulas suggested a
new "error-rq" target.

I do like the idea of a single error target that is hybrid (supports
both bio-based and request-based) but the DM core would need to be
updated to support this.

Specifically, we'd need to check if the device (and active table) is
already bio-based or request-based and select the appropriate type.  If
it is a new device, default to selecting bio-based.

There are some wrappers and other logic thoughout DM core that will need
auditing too.

Mike
