You're right, but that's not what I'm proposing...

The difference is, in PL/pgsql they're in the CONTEXT: line, whereas
in plperl they're in the error line. This is inconsistent; if we fix
it, we don't need to add kludge to pgTAP.
But later in the thread the desired fix became not changing perl but
instead making a way to report error codes from plperl, which is what
I'm attempting to do with my rusty C skills soon. plperl should have
ereport() *anyway*, as I believe Tom had insinuated.
