Well, it works, but it does not what I would want it to do.  (Well,
I haven't tested it, but I am pretty sure, since the code is quite

What I want is this: I have the source in, say, buffer A, and I perform
the translation in, say, buffer B.  The overlay is in buffer A, and
I want to move it to the next sentence (in buffer A) _without moving the
point away from buffer B_.

My code does exactly that (even if inefficiently).
