That patch was only intended as a ephemeral one to see if it can solve
the issue reported by Joe at the time.  But checking it again, I now
think the patch actually does the right thing.  The reason is that
since those --content-on-error pages are downloaded, then links within
those pages should be converted as specified by --convert-links.
There is no need for a new option for this and the current doc is just
fine.  But I will try adding an test cases for this.
