Actually, that thread did not conclude that the current set of rules is The
Right Way. It ignored my suggestion (which was to keep the
`current-buffer' as the first rule, but to disable it if current-buffer was
the last source buffer visited by next-error).
I can see how, in some situations, that would be better behavior
in next-error. (My change is still needed for kill-compilation.)
However, it seems to me that there may be other situations were it
might be worse behavior. This is the sort of issue where no solution
is clearly right, every choice is a heuristic, and there may not be
any best solution.
Since your change makes the code more complex, I think we should not
install it now. Instead, people should try it, and we can see whether
they generally like it better. If they do, then please install it.
