Subject: Error messages in Caml &co

(sorry if you read this 3 times; i'm reposting it since i'm getting
"Service unavailable" from - perhaps a local problem)

Just a tiny suggestion for proud caml authors 

  Make caml error messages compatible with Emacs conventions, for
instance compatible with GNU error message convention
   filename:number: error message

Otherwise, give a hint regarding the value of the Emacs variable for
parsing error messages; I've added to my ~/.emacs

  (append compilation-error-regexp-alist
	    (".*lines? \\([0-9]+\\)[ \t]+of[ \t]+\"?\\([^\":\n]+\\)\"?"
	     3 2)

But I am not sure it is correct. If people have a better value, please
tell it!

(If Caml followed usual GNU practice, I won't have to add this).

I do know that CAML is not under GNU license, but many published
compilers follow the GNU convention (which I find ok).
