Do you mean instead of or in addition to the current mechanism? (I assume
instead of. I don't know if the two can be made to coexist.)

I am not particularly happy with Menhir's current error mechanism, which
attempts to follow yacc's. If you could explain to us why ML-Yacc's approach
is superior, that would be great.
