While the rest is absolutly marvelous (and something I use 'sed' to do
myself) there is a problem (for me) with this particular feature. My
user interface/editor uses the <filename>:<linenumber> information to
open the file at that line with 1 mouse click. Therefore I need the
filename right beside the line number to be able to get to the right
place to fix the problems.

Would you consider making it possible to turn on/off the different
features individually?
