getting colder?

Another gem (from pov of those of us who grep a lot) found in VIM documentation:

:help :colder

At first I thought that is another wit command but then realized that the name fits to :cnext and :cprev commands.

Snip from VIM documentation:

So far has been assumed that there is only one list of errors. Actually the
ten last used lists are remembered. When starting a new list, the previous
ones are automatically kept.

And the two commands are :colder (to go to previous results) and :cnewer (to go back to newer results).

P.S. "List of errors" is used in VIM originally for :make. Results of :grep are also interpreted as list of errors, what promotes grep into rank of compiler (:
