If you want one source-location-related thing, you tend to want the others, and you also want to be able to forward the source location info easily through the depths of your assertion/logging framework.
The downside is that this becomes Yet Another Compiler-Known Type and Yet Another Thing In the Standard Library. All the current fields are string literals and integer literals.
