I'd prefer the default be to use whichever one (compilation, grep,
occur) was launched most recently.  Sometimes I have really old
compile buffers laying around (I never kill them typically).  And I
wouldn't want the presence of those old compilation buffers to mean
that I couldn't use this cool new 'C-x `' functionality for the M-x
occur I just ran a second ago.  I don't usually kill *grep* buffers

In order to accomplish this, probably M-x compile, M-x occur and M-x
grep would have to set some variable like `next-error-follow-command'
to 'compile, 'occur or 'grep, respectively, inside those function
