The text I wrote and you quoted already said that it was shorter but not
enough to warrant an additional variable.  So you think saving 16
characters is worth an additional hook?
Based on that, I guess I should just change the naming conventions:

   (add-hook 'next-error-functions #'my-function)
   (add-f :before-until next-error-f #'my-f)

Look ma!  We should change all hooks to be plain foo-f variables!

None of those reasons seem to apply the question of whether it's worth
adding a next-error-functions hook (remember: next-error-function exists
already, since long before add-function was born).

At this point I feel like you're confusing me with an idiot.
