Gentlemen, your next-error command is inconsiderate of where one wants
the cursor on the line, always returning one to the beginning of the
next line with an error on it.

What if my job is to put an apple at the end of each line with a
marshmallow on it?

The best I could do would be (grep "grep -n -e marshmallow somefile")
Then it's "get out the C-e finger", it's exercise time.

As a remedy, you might notice, just like with next-line, where my
cursor was.  Or you might add an option to M-x grep about where to
place the cursor or something...

On some lines I might need potatoes or a salad.

Well, let's say I still must use next-error for reasons of National
Defense that I must not disclose.
