I only objected to including source file/line information, as we
do in debug mode. At least, that's all I intended to object to,
and I hope that's what I wrote ;->.

Can someone include sample output? Is this causing more error
messages to break weirdly at 80 columns?

I think the user knows to type "svn" along with the error code
into a search engine. Those 4 extra characters eat up precious
horizontal error message space. Alternatively, we could include
just the outermost error code of a chain, printed on a separate
line before the rest of the error output.
