[RFC PATCH v7 2.5/9] gitweb: Make die_error just die, and use send_error to create error pages

Unify error handling by treating errors from Perl (and thrown early in
process using 'die STRING'), and errors from gitweb in the same way.
This means that in both cases error page is generated after an error
is caught in run() subroutine.

die_error() subroutine is now split into three: gen_error() which
massages parameters (escaping HTML, turning HTTP status number into
full HTTP status code), die_error() which uses gen_error() and just
throws an error (and does not generate an error page), and
send_error() which catually generate error page based on provided
error / exception.

Sidenote: probably in the future instead of using simple hash for
throwing gitweb exception, gitweb would use some custom error class,
e.g. derivative of Exception::Class (like SVN::Web does it).

This is sent early to facilitate early comments.  It passes test suite,
but it was not extensively tested.

Now die_error() functions mode like 'die'...
