Have you tried this on un-named code blocks (with the latest Org-mode
from git)?  It should work for those as well -- it parses the name, and
uses org-babel-next-src-block to jump down the appropriate number of

Agreed, I was planning on implementing this, it shouldn't be difficult.

That's a great suggestions, I will certainly look at folding it in.

As I said above, I /believe/ that it is usable as such now, however if
you could come up with an example where this fails, please do let me

Great, I'll post any future improvements I make to this thread, and
please do let me know if you run across errant behavior or new
potentially useful behavior.
