    It has a big potential to grow.  I have about 40 lines uninstalled
    (next-error-highlight related code), because of unresolved issues
    regarding the right name of the whole framework.

Please assume that the name will not change.

      Plus Dan Nicolaescu
    proposed the code for next-error-follow-minor-mode (50 lines) which
    should go into the same file.  So even without Ted's plans to
    extend it, this gives enough lines to split it into a new file.

That is still way too small for a new file to be desirable.

    BTW, replace.el should be split too.  All occur related functions
    should be moved from replace.el into a separate file occur.el, because
    they are already 460 lines.

I see no reason to split them.  Please assume the files will
stay the same for now, and focus on issues of how to change the code.

occur has been in replace.el since the file was first written, along
with the commands how-many, keep-lines, and flush-lines, which it
is traditionally grouped with.
