I've got a lot of code that looks like this:

$result = $query->FMFind();
if( FX::isError( $result ) ) {
~  // report error
if( $result['errorCode'] ) {
~  // report error, very slightly differently
// blah blah

It would be convenient to only have to handle errors once, even with the
existing return array structure.

(Compatibility might be an issue of course if you change the FMFind
behavior; when the error objects appeared for internal errors I had to
make adjustments, and when the default server version changed to fmpro7
I had to hack a bunch of my scripts to keep operating on our 5.5 server.)
