Hi all,

I just noticed it is there already.  I inherited from the old mode
compilation-skip-to-next-location which was default nil.  So I retained that
value.  The snag is that the implementation of this was redundant, so the
value didn't matter.  So if I now default it to t, we get skipping of
contiguous messages :-)

I'll check that in these days.
