Changes (by warner):

  * milestone:  eventually => 1.4.0


 I just tested 1.3.0 (actually trunk as of [3740]), and there's still a
 problem, but a different one. {{{tahoe get my:unrecoverable LOCAL}}} (on a
 file with only two shares, using 3-of-10) results in an empty file named
 LOCAL being created, and an ugly HTML representation of an
 {{{UnrecoverableFileError}}} being written to stderr. The process exit
 status is 1.

 The two bugs:
  * LOCAL should not be created
  * the HTML traceback should not be printed, instead
 "!UnrecoverableFileError" and perhaps a short message should be written to
