This might be a strange idea, but I find that a lot of the problems I
encounter are solved by searching on parts of the error message.
However, error messages tend to have custom variable names etc. so
they aren't perfect search queries.
Would it be practical to create a searchable index of error messages
where the error messages are represented as RegExp queries?
Instead of searching the index with "my" error message, the index
searches my error message using the list of RegExp to see if one of
them matches. That way maybe one could eventually perform the search
directly in the error trace. Thus giving context sensitive help right
when and where it is needed the most...
