[Maxima] how to stop the annotation of lists by filenames?

Arrgh, this was too optimistic:

Replacing the original add-lineinfo definition
by the trivial one passes all the Maxima-build tests,
and also mine (except of those designed to catch
the old behaviour), and apparently except of
two calls in nparse.lisp this function is
not used at all, but, alas, with the trivialised
version the error-function does not print out
the file-information about the error (exploited by
my little unit-test system).

So a switch is needed, perhaps a boolean Maxima variable
"lineinfo" which when true triggers the use of the original
add-lineinfo function, while when false triggers the use
of the trivial replacement.

I'm not sure how to handle this best.
Any opinions?
