Discoverability trick: if the word "error:" is a hyperlink, most users 
will know that they can interact with that error message. Since clicking 
a hyperlink is standard behavior in a modern UI, there wouldn't be a 
(pressing) need to document the behavior.

In addition, a blue, underlined hyperlink fits perfectly with Pd's 1990s 
motif aesthetic.
