Thanks for writing this.

I was curious about what versions of Gerrit this is designed to
support (or in other words whether it's a bug fix or a feature).
Looking at examples like [1], it seems that Gerrit historically always
used "ERROR:" so the 59a255aef0 logic would work for it.  More
recently, [2] (ReceiveCommits: add a "SUCCESS" marker for successful
change updates, 2018-08-21) put SUCCESS on a line of its own.  That
puts this squarely in the new-feature category.

"success" on its own line is even less likely to be a false positive
than "success" followed by punctuation (for example a period marking
the end of a sentence).  So I like this change.

In the old code, we would escape early if 'n == len', but we didn't
need to.  If 'n == len', then

	src[len] == '\0'
	src .. &src[len-1] is a valid buffer to read from

so the strncasecmp and strbuf_add operations used in this function are
valid.  Good.

Our custom isalnum treats '\0' as not alphanumeric (sane_ctype[0] ==
GIT_CNTRL) so this part of the patch is unnecessary.  That said, it's
good for clarity and defensive programming.

Nice tests.

The "hinting: not highlighted" example shows that we aren't
introducing false positives here, so the coverage seems sufficient.
It might be nice to include a line

	echo ERROR:

as well to match another idiom that Gerrit sometimes uses.

Thanks again for a pleasant read.
