If you have the starting column of the short identifier, I think it's
easy to scan the source backwards and forwards to find:

  1. The start of the long identifier.
  2. The end of the short identifier.
  3. The end of the long identifier.


Assuming so, I'm all in favor of reporting the starting column of the
short identifier.
