(Assuming I understand it correctly) To get from file A back to B and
then back to A again:

Navigation History: Back, Forward.
This patch: Next, Next.

In other words.. you don't have to keep track of your position in the
history to know what to press to get to the last file you visited.

Another difference: Be in file A. Jump to pos 1 in file B. Then jump
to B2. 'Back' will go to B1*, 'Next' will go to A.

*Well.. it will actually jump to the position you were in when you
jumped to B2. This is by design.
