I like this one (above), especially if you could append the date+time to
the formfeed and, ideally, some indication of the source code block
responsible for what follows.  The latter is important because I often have
multiple source code blocks with the same language and it would be nice
to distinguish between them in terms of error output.  Having the
srcname appear would be great, if it's possible.

thanks,
