WinHugs already colours (to some degree) and hyperlinks error messages.

http://www-users.cs.york.ac.uk/~ndm/projects/winhugs.php (screenshot
on that page)

GuiHaskell does it a lot more, with full syntax colouring of error
messages and hyperlinks. Unfortunately it can't be used reliably at
the moment due to threading issues with Gtk+Gtk2Hs+GHC+Windows.


GuiHaskell merely wraps GHCi (and Hugs and other stuff), so allows
syntax colouring to be implemented without diving into the GHC source



PS. The Haskell-cafe mailing list is better for this sort of question,
haskell tends to be more used for announcements, so i've sent the
follow up there.
