    Minimizing the amount of changes is a worthy goal but it should not take
    precedence over the goals of: - consistent behavior - maintainability What
    this means is that it would be better to integrate the support for occur and
    the support for grep and compile rather than add a layer on top of the
    support for grep and compile.

You are probably right.  But I think the biggest problem here will be
finding th right rules for this command to follow, which will give
results that the users like and find natural.

    That's probably tru.  If you can come up with a better name, maybe we
    can change it.  I don't find dwim-next to be much btter.

dwim-next is not very good, because it is very vague about
what sort of thing it will do.

How about goto-next-locus?
