Dear all,

One of my pet peeves are error messages :

I would like to make a patch for Error reporting that will produce xml
based error messages from the compiler, but want to get support from
rhys before I start on such a contraversial task.

This will include : 
1. Filenames as attributes
<error file=./blah.cs line=45 col=32><!--content--></error>

2. Methods descriptors 
when we are in a method, then we can reference it like this.
<error file=./blah.cs line=45 col=32><method name="t"

2. Error Objects
when we are in a method, then we can reference it like this.
Each error type will be its own xml element.
<error file=./blah.cs line=45 col=32><method name="t"
class="myclass"><unknowntype name="FunkyClass"

2. More TypeCast information
<badcast From="FUnkyCompl3X" To="int">
     <possible totype="char" method="toInt"/>
