My idea was to extend FormatMessage() internally.
So no user program has to call (directly) this new exported functions.
It would would get the enhanced error messages automatically.
This change is no cause of compatibility problems, since no one
can expect the messages in a specific format anyways - it's already
internationalized and different from language to language.
However we could export the functions for future applications,
which may be ROS-aware, perhaps naming them
ROS_SetLastErrorWithInfo() and ROS_GetLastErrorInfo().
