Currently flymake gives a visual hint of an error location but to get the
message of that error you need either to:

1. Move the mouse over the error location and wait for a tooltip to

2. Move the point before (after) the error location and use the commands
to get the next (previous) error.

Now 2 is clearly not ideal since it forces the user to locate the point in
non-intuitive positions (intuitive position = where the error
highlighting is) and to type long commands.

At first sight 1 seems to address this fact but, hey, the mouse?
A tooltip delay? It's nice to have it but a standard keybinding is
missing here IMO. Besides, it's not so easy to define a custom one since
there is no error-at-point function, one has to get the point location,
then the diagnostics for that location, then the text for those diagnostics.

Neither I think, it's a side effect of good design and following

I pushed the docchange to master as 15f4cdd873.

Yeah, I'd go with Dmitry's suggestion in


where he demonstrates that you can customize this by using:

    '(help-at-pt-timer-delay 0.1)
    '(help-at-pt-display-when-idle '(flymake-diagnostic)))

Though, in my testing, this always defers to eldoc (which is probably
the intended behavior).
