I'm going to close it then :-)

| 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?
