Fear me. I combined Walter's code with my own to form some kind of Voltron!

I think the compiler's error design could use a complete overhaul. I'm wondering if it wouldn't be wise to start a new git branch for all changes to error messages. Call it `stderr.experimental` or something cute like that. The idea is that D won't break people's test code that checks error output until a more complete design has been worked out and approved of. I'm not in favor of or against this idea. I just wanted to propose it.
