I have change my mind on this ...

mostly to do with implementation limitation;

e.g. an informal survey of popular computing language error mechanisms
shows that there is an incredible variability in error output format
... as well as limited control either as a constraint imposed by
language designers or differences as imagined by language
processor/compiler implementators.

oddly formated plaintext error output has always interfered in making
unit testing reports nicer ... also I would have thought that a
standard standard error output XML vocabulary would be a no brainer in
software development, anyone know of anything with any traction out
there?

cheers, Jim Fuller
