Good.  But what was said was that "compile (and grep) require font-lock to
work".  That's what my comment responded to.

If that is not true, then users are not deprived of important functionality -
they need only turn font-lock back off after it gets turned on automatically in
the compilation buffer.  Annoying, but in that case we cannot say that grep and
compile will not work.
