Ah, I see.

I've implemented this, but without whitespace between the formfeed and
the file name. That's because everything following the ^L appears (or
is intended to appear) on a separate line and beginning a line with a
whitespace seems strange, in my opinion.  Wdyt?

That's reasonable.  In fact, judging by the fact that all these messages
appear in the code within #ifdef conditionals, they were rather intended
for debugging, so I converted them to debug() calls instead.
