Should Tab/S-Tab behave the same way in a compilation buffer?

A few days ago I added the [backtab] key binding to the existing [tab]
key binding in grep.el for symmetry.  I don't know why [tab] was
bound to `compilation-next-file' instead of `compilation-next-error'.
It is more natural to expect [tab] moving to the next underlined link
(which `compilation-next-error' does).  So what about the following patch
(I also deleted commented-out bindings for next-line because this is now
implemented by `next-error-follow-minor-mode'):
Thanks, I think it would be nice to have this.
