When DMD reports an error or warning, only the line number is reported. The
column number or horizontal position is not. In this day of relatively large
screens, we don't all program with 60 chars per line and I consider this a
serious limitation, forcing the user to waste extra time on information the
compiler already "knows".

I am aware the error reporting process may take longer, but this more than
offset by the shorter bug locating time that results.

Every modern compiler has this feature, and DMD should follow suit.
