 Replying to [comment:20 sbrandt]:
 > As for reporting multiple errors, I'm not sure what the solution should
 be. Currently, I report errors with CCTK_Error(). That mechanism doesn't
 have the capability to report errors on multiple lines. It could be
 extended, or I could create some new special purpose error reporting tool
 --but that should be another ticket IMHO.

 Reporting multiple errors is tricky and usually not "clean". What other
 code does in this situation is to make the "error" reports a level 1
 warning (which according to the docs are mistakes that will most likely
 make the code produce the wrong answer) and keep track (in a global
 variable or similar) that errors were encountered. Then after the full
 parfile is parsed, it checks whether any errors were encountered and then
