These are great ideas, in the case of single block execution I think
we're fine with the current behavior of a cleared error buffer
containing only a single error output, but in the case of multiple block
evaluations (e.g. chained code blocks or during export) I think that the
above suggestions are great.  I especially like the idea of one Org-mode
top-level heading per error.

I've added this to the Babel task stack.

Cheers -- Eric
