I fully agree with Sanjoy, in fact I think I may have reported this a
year or two or three ago :).  Any hope?

I just noticed that with the -file-line-error-style option, tex no
longer says which control sequence is undefined.  Usually you can guess,
but it would be useful to see them.  Here's a transcript:

$ cat u.tex

$ tex --file-line-error-style u
This is TeXk, Version 3.14159 (Web2C 7.4.5)
 file:line:error style messages enabled.
./u.tex:2: Undefined control sequence
[1] )
(see the transcript file for additional information)
Output written on u.dvi (1 page, 220 bytes).
Transcript written on u.log.
