I  think  I disagree on re-ordering error reports for only one reason: when a
compiler spots an error, it makes some kind of correction.  This  is  clearly
the  case  with syntax errors, but even for type errors.  This means that all
errors reported later are suspect  because  they  are  errors  in  a  program
different  from  what  I  gave  to  the  compiler.   They  are  errors in the
`corrected' program.
