What I am after is seeing "EXXXXX" as a part of the message with any LANG,
including English:

LANG=en:  "No such file or directory (ENOENT)"
LANG=xx:  "&((/&=(/%&/(&%/(/)(/&/ ENOENT"

It could be nice to have a common convention for all languages
about the formatting of the error reference, like parentheses
around the name and/or placing it rightmost, but this is probably
impossible with some languages.
