Is anybody aware of an Emacs library that provides ways to gather a
list of errors in a separate buffer and make that navigatable?  The
output one gets when using `M-x compile RET' looks a bit crude.  I am
thinking of something more sophisticated.

For example, if a LaTeX run contains errors, the user could ask AUCTeX
to display a list of all errors in a separate window.  So, in the
upper window one would see the LaTeX file while in the lower window
something like

./file.tex:16: Misplaced alignment tab character &.
./file.tex:16: Missing $ inserted.
./file.tex:17: Missing $ inserted.

When placing point on a line it would be highlighted.  Typing <RET> or
<g> would jump to the error in the respective LaTeX buffer and bring
the buffer to front in the upper window.  Typing <SPC> would "expand"
the line and display the error message, its context in the log file,
and possibly a help message.  One could navigate through errors with
<n> (next error) or <p> (previous error).  Typing <l> would open the
log file at the respective place of the error.  Typing <q> would close
the buffer.  And so on.
