Better error diagnostics coming

In the next release of xmlsh (ETA end of may), there is a significant improvement to error diagnostics. This effects normal function errors, as well as the -v and -x options.

All command errors that cause a usage or exception, as well as -v and -x output
produces file/line diagnostics.

$ echo -foo
[stdin line: 1]
echo: Unknown option: foo

In scripts this includes the filename of the script and line number.

This output is also in -v and -x output (preceeding the function)

$ set -v -x
$ echo foo

- [stdin line: 7]
echo foo
+ [stdin line: 7]
echo foo
