better support for line numbers.

​Sounds like some nice work that will pinpoint Lisp errors
even more closely than stack traces do now.  But as noted
in an earlier message, things are not bad in the Lisp space.
Emacs C code is where we often lack any reasonable pointer
to the source of an error, so improving upon the core
mechanisms there would be most valuable.
