Hmm, you would have already thought but I don't think it is /doc
specific matter, and handling XML error as some special case does
not sound so good (am not sure if there are similar cases that
depend on external things to mcs itself). Maybe something like
regex would help it. I'll look into compiler-tester when I have
extra time to do it.
