[mercury-users] String Runaway Reporting

It whould be nice, if mmc could report missing quotes in a way similar to

Bareword found where operator expected at clip.pl line 3, near "print "jak"
  (Might be a runaway multi-line "" string starting on line 1)

So far, mmc reports plain syntax error:

csts2uttr.m:025: Syntax error at token 'data': expected `,', `)', or operator.

(and makes unexperienced users to spend ten minutes searching docs on
module system, unmatching predicates definitions... :-)

Would it be hard to implement?

Thanks, Andrew.
