I'm not opposed to adding this as a future option, but I don't want to
complicate the intentionally simple interface to next-error (set
next-error-function and next-error-last-buffer, that's it).  I think a
list of buffers would complicate life for users and developers alike,
without adding much functionality.  It would be especially bad for
backward compatibility, which RMS insists on.  So maybe it could be an
optional registration API into next-error for advanced users, but
definitely not the primary interface.
