There is a page on the web that purports to specify the format of error
messages for gnu products. I would have assumed that gnuemacs
would have fully implemented this set of standards.

The claim is that

"When an error is spread over several files, you can use this format:

file1:line1.column1-file2:line2.column2: message"

gnuemacs does not seem to understand this in the next error function.
It only sees the first file, line. The message

Namespace '' does not have access to 
items in namespace ''.
does not seem to trigger anything for the second and third file.
If this was a microsoft standard, i would understand and just suck it up,
but this is a gnu standard!!!!
