I would like to be able to set units to follow (and later unfollow) other
units.  This would be useful when moving a large group from one point to
another point which requires scrolling.  Currently, you select one unit, then
scroll to the desired point, then focus is shifted to the next unit and you
repeat the process, over and over again.  It is even worse when the units are
moving by rail, which means there is no justification for picking closer
points along the way as targets.

This would also be useful when a unit is being shepherded by a slower unit,
for instance a transport protected by a battleship.  Currently, you have to
move the battleship as many squares as it can move in one turn, then move the
transport to the same square.  If it were possible to follow units, you could
set the transporter to follow the battleship and then direct the battleship
to a distant location, knowing that the transport would remain protected.
