Message printing library

'liberror' solves the allegedly simply task of printing messages. It is essentially a feature-rich substitute for fprintf(stderr,...). Features include colours via ANSI mark-up, multiple error streams, report files, automatic error number assignment, filtering by number, subsystems and groups, buffering with manual filtering and re-issuing, callbacks, error counters, time stamping, and message styles.
