The default is not to ignore errors.  The default is to ignore warnings, and
I remember we debated this quite a bit at the time I wrote the script to
parse the output from xxxTeX.  Looking at the log, I can see that I changed
the script to return a 2 if there were warnings, 1 if there were errors and
0 otherwise way back in may 2005.

If you are saying that there are warnings that are really errors, and there
is a way to tell that the warning should be really treated as an error, I
would be happy to learn about it and adjust the script.
Right now I'm just using a series of regexps to try and pull the important
stuff from all the output from pdflatex.
