Silent WMS errors

Whenever a WMS interaction goes bad for any reason (in my case the WMS server advertises wrong service url, resulting in timeout or arbitrary data coming back) such exception produces no user feedback, leaving the user on his own on debugging the issue.
It'll help if errors would generally be somewhat more noisy, on a default build.
The idea of an "errors console" might help here, as long as even with such console not visible there would be a widget to signal presence of error/warning/info messages.
Will reserve more comments about an "error console" in the appropriate ticket, if there is one.
