Actually this is incorrect, you might want to have a look at the php manual under Error Handling and Logging Functions, php gives you a huge array of possible ways to trap errors and how to handle them..  However all that to one side, the issue here is not really just about errors it is *any* message that is generated during activation, including warnings etc..

As I posted, put a error action hook in place on activation and we will trap the messages on a plugin by plugin basis..  Hooks are cheap, just a line of code..
