I've stated before, I think this is a *great* idea and would encourage
you to prototype it out to see if there's any significant gotchas.
There's several places I think we could use it.

I think David is out right now, but I think he'd claim that emitting
diagnostics strictly in line number order isn't best anyway.  Building a
queuing mechanism with an eye towards a more complex comparison to
facilitate priority ordering of diagnostics would be a good thing.  He
may already have some prototype code, not sure on that.
