Your best bet may be to follow the pylint panel's design and to present 
a list of errors that users can click on.  You're correct that neither a 
way to highlight errors or to set bookmarks is part of the Wing api.  We 
could add commands to set bookmarks and clear bookmarks in the near 
future, though the current implementation would need to change somewhat. 
  Being able to highlight code warnings / errors is farther off.
