Because "(add-hook 'next-error-functions #'my-function)" is shorter than
the `add-function' variant, along with all the other good reasons which
have been posted in this thread.

Let me repeat my question: in what respect is the `add-function' way of
doing things superior to the conventional hook mechanism?  If the answer
is "in no respect", then I would suggest that the project continue to
use hooks in preference to `add-function' functions.
