    Which, you'll agree is not very usefull is the error arises from the  
    conjunction of 3 different statements at lines 5, 19 and 1027.

The syntax <file>:<startline>.<startcol>-<endline>.<endcol>:<message>
is intended for sitations where a continuous range of code that spans
a few lines is the locus of the error.

In the case you're talking about, it is certainly better to generate 3
different error messages, one for each of those error loci, using the
GNU standard format to indicate them.

They can be supplemented by other text that explains how the three
statements relate to each other and constitute an error.
