overlay-arrow-variable-list seems to be a very embryonic feature.  While you
can put more than one variable into it, only the first occurence in the buffer
actually gets a little arrow in the fringe.  And even though there is a string
use instead on non-window frames, the feature is not even present on a
text-terminal.  And it only works at BOL, whereas error-messages are now
recognized anywhere on a line, even one behind another.

So I'll have to use my own overlay.  I'm wondering if flashing this for half a
second, like the jumped to position, is useful.  While that is more of a toy,
since the cursor lands there anyways, highlighting the message seems to be an
essential feature for some people.  If you get distracted after Cx- ` you can
easily miss this within half a second — especially if it takes a second to
fetch a remote file first.

Maybe I should combine half a second with a pre command hook?  Or leave it
until another message gets located?
