We misunderstand each other.  I _do_ remember.  It's just not the right
time, and it's not even sure we need it.  I've thrown a lot of ideas,
which does not mean you have to implement them.  Just keep them in mind
until someone says ``Hey!  I need this, so it'd be cool if...''.


Keep It Stupid Simple.

Don't be MacDonald, don't try to create a need people don't have.

If you do want something to work on, then I have something for you:
have bison recognize #line _in input_.  Of course by no means shall
you do that on 1.29, but on the trunk.

Some people generate foo.y, with #line in it, from say `foo.z'.  Then
they want bison to output sync lines relative to foo.z, not foo.y.
