This doesn't work on terminal using a variable-width font, does it?
Sure, you can have all the interfaces use a monospace font, but it seems
a weird thing to do.  I think the line/character position should be
returned in a separate error attribute in ereport.  So for example
pgAdmin could count characters and mark it in bold or use a different
color.
