Some tools (e.g. IPython) show a special error message like the following if common SyntaxError metadata is available:

$ PYTHONPATH=src ipython
In [1]: from lxml import etree
In [2]: etree.parse('src/lxml/tests/test_broken.xml')
  File "src/lxml/tests/test_broken.xml", line 1
XMLSyntaxError: Opening and ending tag mismatch: b line 1 and c, line 1, column 11

This PR adds the necessary fields filename, lineno and offset, while making position a property in order to keep it in sync with lineno and offset if those are changed.

self.assertEqual(e.lineno, 1)
self.assertEqual(e.offset, 10)
except Exception as e:'{}, not {}'.format(fail_msg, type(e)))

Empty format keys aren't supported in Py2.6.
