Actually, the compiler does it _always_ for you by default. The code
is in (c::print-current-form). The problem is that it truncates the
output to make it short and if the form was macroexpanded, well, that
makes it difficult to decipher the cause of the error.

My goal is to transform all compiler notes, warnings and errors into
conditions. They should be collected until compilation finishes,
either successfully or because one of the errors was severe. Using
conditions should allow you to capture the errors in an automated way.
