Not enough scope. Almost all linux errors are sadistically useless :-).

At some point, RFC's need to address error reporting and diagnostics.
There is also Java, which spews out 10^2 lines of tracing data with
nothing to highlight the line that has the key to the problem. 

I suspect the compiler work was driven by academia wanting to reduce
the amount of time wasted in student training to deal with useless error

With much of linux development being done by companies that sell
support, better error reporting would make it easier for organizations
to decide they don't need to pay for support.
