API: propagate errors to single-response APIs #277

Now callers of single response APIs will be able to catch errors from the call that are propagated through @aragon/wrapper.

They can either do this by including an error handler to their .subscribe() or by turning the returned observable into a promise and using the standard promise-rejection handling methods.

A good example of where this is useful is for transaction signing and message signing, where the user may ultimately reject or cancel the intent.

Is there any reason not to leave the response.error an error instance in

It seems like we are converting an error to a string in jsonrpc.js and back to an error here.

Primarily because sending an Error instance through postMessage() will fail: see things that don't work with the structured clone algorithm.

Identity Provider: provide response to aragonAPI when user cancels id…
…entity modification (#686)

Coupled with aragon/aragon.js#277, apps will now receive errors on `requestAddressIdentityModification()`.

Finance: fix token fallbacks and error handling (#813)
Fixes aragon/aragon#734.

With aragon/aragon.js#277 we now get the actual errors back from the RPC when a call goes wrong (e.g. naive `token.symbol()` on DAI) and we need to handle these explicitly.

This PR converts a lot of the token fallback-related bits into simpler Promise-based code and adds explicit handlers for their error cases.
