    If someone changes this maybe it would be a good idea to change some other 
    things to. Some menu entries (recompile, first error, previous error) could 
    made availible via keyboard.

These two issues are unrelated.  If you suggest specific bindings,
I can think about them.

    type on most international keyboards because ` is typically a dead
    key and only available with shift, to boot.

I agree it is inconvenient, but we were already running out of keys
when I chose it.  What other key sequence would you suggest?

    I've always use the old gosmacs binding for this -- `C-x C-n' -- which I
    find very nice (even on a normal ascii keyboard, C-x ` is rather awkward
    to type).

I didn't put it there because I carried forward the original Emacs
meaning of C-x C-n.  However, it could well be that next-error is
used more than set-goal-column.  So perhaps that binding should be changed.

However, if next-error is C-x C-n, previous-error can't be C-x C-p.
It would be better to find a good pair of keys for next-error and
