That's why it would be nice to have such a functionnality implemented
at a low level: a ring for (nth) last messages and another one for
(nth) last warnings.

I don't have any idea whether it seems useful to other people.

BTW, i come to need this while using a function that converts the
current URL into a tiny URL.  See: 
<http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki/tinyurl.el>

`get-metamark' displays a message in the minibuffer and it's more
handy to get this URL by evaluating `last-message'.
