I wonder if rather than tackling things piecemeal,  a broader discussion
and contributions are also warranted towards looking at the wider issue of
both the Console output and Latex Errors tab.

I have almost started to wonder with that if all we can hope
to realistically achieve is making the line number references themselves
hot clickable to the Editor lines with no other processing?
