Two reasons:

1) next-error does not support the occur mode, which was what started
   the discussion in the firts place.  I tried to fix this with
   minimum changes to the Emacs sources.

2) next-error is IMHO a bad name for a function that finds the next
   match in grep mode, and the next occurrence in occur mode.

The second reason is no big deal, just my opinion.
