I see.  That makes sense.  As long as we can achieve the two goals

1) a unified user interface

2) a simple API for developers to use next-error

I'm happy without a minor mode, especially considering the reasons
you mention against it.

Has this (API to install keybindings) been done for another
package, so I don't start from scratch?
