Bug description

Full_Name: John Hughes
Version: ocaml 3.08
Submission from: (

Warning messages in ocaml start with

"Warning: ..."

But error messages have no such thing. It'd be great if they, too, started

"Error: ..." (or perhaps, to maintain the French style, "Error : ...")

One reason for this is that sometimes you get two errors, but to the
it looks like only one error. Having them separated by an obvious signal would
help a lot.

implemented in 3.11+dev8, although sometimes a single error message
looks like two separate errors...
