There was an issue with my BMO API Key and when I tried to push a patch for review I  got a basic error saying `abort: Authorization failed` but doesnt hint where the error could be. See below.

Please can we update the error message to help people fix their own errors.
here's the error logged by httpd:

[Mon Jul 04 13:58:01 2016] [error] AuthExtern bmoapikey [/usr/bin/python2.7 /var/hg/version-control-tools/scripts/httpd-authn-bugzilla-key https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/]: Failed (1) for user dburns@m.c

this looks tricky.. mod_authnz_external doesn't allow authenticators to return a textual error:

I don't see an easy way to fix this given our current auth setup: we'd have to implement authnz outside of httpd.

I'd rather we improve `mach mercurial-setup` to verify your Bugzilla config against BMO. The chances that BMO will work and reviewboard-hg.mozilla.org won't will be small (and shouldn't be isolated to a single user so we would know if it were broke).
