Drive-by comment here, reminded by the bent of this commit. I noticed
yesterday while perusing our issue tracker at least one issue complained
about an error message that I believe was generated by stream-handling code
not carrying the original filename with it, leaving the end user unsure of
which his many files actually had a problem. Maybe you're doing this
already, but please ensure that as we convert to streams (yay!) we wrap
errors with filename-carrying information in those places where the streams
can still be associated with a file.
