I would really appreciate that. I am the one maintaining EclipseFP now
and I know that having the syntax-tree in XML format would help us a
lot. For now, we use our own Haskell parser (written in Java). It is
not a full parser (and maybe it'll never be), but it allows us to do
some tricks like showing a simple code outline and do some code

Maybe this isn't as much work as structuring the error messages.
