FWIW, I want it!  Firstly, it is consistent behaviour.

Secondly, I like the highlighting that instantly shows me the failing line,
instead of having to look for the line containing the cursor -- blinking
the whole line is faster (for me) that having to look for the cursor.

Having two timers, one for next-error and one for -no-select would be the
most flexible solution.  Alternatively, there could be one timer which
works for both if set to a number, or if set to a cons (NO-SELECT . SELECT)
it specifies different timers for the two functions.
