Issue 10: Error messages should be more informative about their result

I _think_ that if monotone prints "misuse: ..." or 
"fatal: ..." or whatever, that always means that it has 
aborted the command the user requested and that that 
database/working copy are unchanged.  But I'm not sure, and if I'm 
not sure, the average user really isn't sure.  Monotone should say 
something useful like "Operation canceled" or 
"Operation aborted, repository unchanged" or something to 
make clear what the actual result of the user's command was.
