Sometimes when you hit M-x compile when, say, you are looking at a
*Buffer list* etc., you might not be sure exactly which directory you
are in... in certain circumstances executing a 'make'  might have
disastrous consequences.  Therefore, perhaps optionally the Compile
command's prompt could remind one of the last directory component,
just like many folks have their shell prompt rigged...

Yes, after it begins execution, we see the "cd ..." but it would be
perhaps nice to know beforehand ...

or perhaps any such reminders would get ignored along with the other 999
things on the screen, i dunno

or maybe its like not looking at the road when driving... be more
careful next time
