Agreed.

I would prefer not to waste resource on this stuff.  I would prefer a
recursive descent parser (isn't there a plan to rewrite the parser?).
At that point we'll have the context.

Currently I'm working on turning cp/error.c and cp/errfn.c into
something less awkward to work with.  We'll pass cp_thing an
output_buffer plus other useful flags for formatting purpose; we might
as well pass other data.  The patch won't be ready before Monday
because I'll be out till Monday morning.

| Ok.

Maybe it is time to start to reimplement the parser.  Mark, Jason?
