An alternative name is onError, probably more often used for event
callbacks. But I don't know, maybe errorBehavior is actually better.

should we fall back to hook.errorBehavior? That allows people to set
global policy, then customize just a small set of weird hooks.

maybe stop-on-first-error (or if you go with the "onError" name, I
think "stop" is enough). I know "stop on/after first hook" does not
really make any sense when you think about it. Maybe stop-on-first is
sufficient.

I was going to suggest strcasecmp. But core.whitespace (also has
multiple-word-values) already sets a precedent on strcmp. I think
we're good. Or mostly good, I don't know, we still accept False, false
and FALSE.

This is basically the logical "and" behavior in a C expression. Which
makes me think if anybody's crazy enough to need the "or" counterpart
(i.e. run hooks, expect failure, keep going until the first success).

I guess it's a crazy mode. We should not care about until a real use
case shows up.

I couldn't guess based on this name alone, whether we continue or stop
after the reporting part. The 7/7 document makes it clear though. So
all good.

Maybe stick this in 'struct repository'. I know most config variables
are still global. But I think we have to move/reorganize them at some
point. Most may end up in 'struct repository'.

maybe BUG(".. behavior %d", behavior);
