Yeah, that's a good solution -- not only is `C-x p' slightly more
intuitive because it's a bit closer to `C-x h', but also previous-error
makes better use of the fact that `C-x C-p' is easy to type repeatedly
(because you can just hold down the control key and type `x p x p ...').
There's obviously little point in using mark-page more than once in row. :-)

There seems to be something of a consensus developing in this thread for
using `C-x C-n' and `C-x C-p' for next/previous-error, moving mark-page
to `C-x p', and simply removing the default binding for set-goal-column.

Are there any _objections_ to such a change?
