Would we even want to do s/where/which tree-ish/?

Yeah, I'd be surprised that nobody thought of doing that, so perhaps
somebody tried and failed with a possible fallout.  I do not offhand
see any downside of teaching them to do the prefixing.

For existing multi-line warnings that uses a single call to
warning(), I think the preparer of the message manually indents the
second and subsequent line by a run of SPs to match the screen width
of "warning:" prefix (and expect translators to do the same with
their language), and we need to get rid of that kind of "hack" when
we insert a middle layer between *_builtin() and vreportf() to do
the line chomping to produce output similar to advise() code.

Agreed.
Thanks.
