Just so that people dont start getting scared, I'd just like to clarify
that this is not a restriction caused by the GtkBuilder design.

The original write-up doesnt include contextual error reports
for every case of a parse failure, IMO that is simply a bug,
that doesnt mean that things need to be redisigned or anything
to correct it, just some patchwork to be done - no big deal.
