I've been using my own error-reporting for so long I can't recall seeing the default standalone handling.

I have made a couple of quickies where I just used LC's error reporting, but clumsy as that design is at least the output from the "Send Report" button is more useful than the raw list of triplet integers. >

Why is the least useful thing the easiest for new developers to do?

Shouldn't it be easy for LC devs to deliver a great application experience?

I can't remember a time when it *didn't* report the triplets outside of the IDE. That's why you and I wrote the Error Lookup stack. ;)
