Hmm, didn't notice so far :(

Next should move the dot to the next non-deleted message and print it.
Previous should behave the same way. As far as I know, all existing
implementations follow this principle. I don't know about just hitting
return, though. It seems a good idea to make it run "next". Maybe
it would be better if it just repeated the last executed command?
