It turned out to be unexpectedly easy to implement.
The only downside is now we have to rather tediously tweak the error
message texts so they use backticks.
sorry for being rude, but this is exactly the example of things programmers
like to write: fun, quite easy, and absolutely useless. most of the time it
will be filtered away by ide/editor, and otherwise it is *harder* to read,
'cause it will almost certainly not match editor's syntax coloring settings,
so reader will have to mentally strip the colors first.
while much harder task -- showing which exactly template failed in template
constraint -- is very hard to implement (i tried it, i know it), but will
immediately benefit *anyone*, and will be really useful.
i'm not trying to say that you should drop the things you like to work on,
and switch to the things i like, of course. but this patch, IMO, doesn't
deserve a dedicated NG post.
sorry again, i'm frustrated by dmd inability to generate valid .o file from
completely valid source, so can be harsh today.
