    I'm not opposed to adding this as a future option, but I don't want to
    complicate the intentionally simple interface to next-error (set
    next-error-function and next-error-last-buffer, that's it).  I think a
    list of buffers would complicate life for users and developers alike,
    without adding much functionality.  It would be especially bad for
    backward compatibility, which RMS insists on.

There's a misunderstanding here.  I am not saying this change must be
entirely "backward compatibility".  The intended feature, making
next-error handle Occur buffers, is an incompatible change, but that
is ok.

Rather, the point is to get the behavior for choice of buffers
that will *seem right and convenient to the user*.

Someone pointed out that the stack idea might not really offer much
benefit, though.
