YMMV, but at least for me a deluge of errors is less helpful than a
short list I can fix quickly, then try again. Often by fixing one error
from the list a sizeable portion of the rest just vanish (I forget the
English term for that kind of error).

(In before "you can use sth like quickfix to go through the first few
errors and compile again whenever you feel like it".)
