programmer errors. Seems to be the most "popular" solution.

  317:            raise RuntimeError("localctx accessed but self._local isn't set")
  323:            raise RuntimeError("otherctx accessed but self._other isn't set")
  2011:           raise RuntimeError('can\'t reuse the manifest: '
  2014:           raise RuntimeError('can\'t reuse the manifest: '

  1019:           raise RuntimeError('programming error: transaction requires '

There are some subclasses of RuntimeError though:

  298:class TransactionUnavailable(RuntimeError):
  856:                raise RuntimeError('duplicated params: %s' % pname)
  909:            raise RuntimeError('part can only be consumed once')
  1078:        raise RuntimeError('no repo access from stream interruption')

  149:class LockInheritanceContractViolation(RuntimeError):
  168:class PushRaced(RuntimeError):
  198:class ReadOnlyPartError(RuntimeError):
