I meant that parsing the column will be easy. Though adding column
support to the message window requires some work, and the plugins ABI
must be changed. Only a few plugins use msgwin_msg_add*, but the
full patch will have to wait after out september release.

It emits a column number pretty often on my system. Sometimes even close
to the actual error. :)
