Improve error for non-existing PPAs

Since we weren't returning after encountering this error, it allowed the
unhandled error processing to print an error as well, which is not

A traceback is generated when attempting to create a PPA for an owner

Handle unauthorized exception when trying to create/set private PPAs

Fix handling of boolean command line options

server-side, but also limit the number of sequential retries to 3, to
avoid getting stuck in a loop if the problem is something else. The
counter is reset to zero each time we successfully complete a wait
cycle, so that if Launchpad is *slightly* glitchy this will be
