That's useful, but also different in nature and scope to a global
ring, which would not use a local variable (`next-error-function') to
navigate to other "errors".  An "xref-location-ring" would be simpler.

By the way, I didn't know previous-error/next-error worked with xref.
Is that documented in the manual?
