Attached is a patch for replace.el (occur) and compile.el
(next-error). I also defalias as mentioned above.
It tries to be smart about the current buffer, to simulate what
next-error does already. It also handles negative and positive
arguments as usual. It does not handle the universal prefix
If occur has not been loaded at all (checked by soft-intern of
"occur-last-buffer") next-error behaves exactly as before, looking at
grep and compile output.
I'm sure the code needs corrections, so feel free to critique. The
diff should have been done at the same, level too... It should be
enough to get the idea across.
