Repeating the search was precisely what I did.  But that's not exactly

Using next-error never occurred to me (there's nothing about that in
NEWS or in the manual).  Yes, that works.  But it has the problem you
mentioned in a past discussion: if you have (say) a Grep buffer from a
recent search, it's not easy to tell next-error which of them to use.
I guess the feature you suggested back then for making this easier
never materialized?  Maybe we should introduce it now.

Its details are still unclear, as far as I'm concerned: both the UI and the changes in the API, which may be required.

It's probably too late for 25.1.

I suppose we could provide a separate key (`a'?) that would do what RET
does now.

Maybe we should make RET do the same as '.' in all cases, and provide
a separate key to delete the window showing *xref*.

'.' moves point to the next line, shows the corresponding location in the other window, but does not switch to it.

You probably mean the same as me: 'RET' shows the location in the other window, and switches to it. 'a' quits the *xref* buffer, then does the same.
