+1. I often have several compilation-mode buffers active (one from a
compile, one from a cross-reference tool, one from grep), and I expect
next-error to use the one I last chose.

I chose one by visiting the buffer, and using <ret> to go to an error.

So just be sure the user has a way to indicate which buffer/location
list is "current".
