Hmm... What for? In the Emacs trunk, it trivially resolves to
"(with-no-warnings (called-interactively-p kind))", which is a longish
way to say just "(called-interactively-p kind)". And externally
maintained packages would still need to define it because the whole
point is that they are loaded in environments which are *not* the
Emacs trunk... So the only benefit for them would be to be able to do

  (if (fboundp 'compatible-called-interactively-p)
      (compatible-callled-interactively-p kind)
    ;; compatibility code here

and that's no less trouble that directly defining the compatibility
macro in the first place.
