Amen to that.  I find the diagnostic output of 8.2 substantially improved
(more useful in locating the reported bugs) over previous versions.  So
reverting to previous behaviour would not be a good idea.

It should not take too long for the relevant emacs modules to be updated.
And they should be made more forgiving of small changes in the output
format (use less precise regular expressions).
