Of course adding ";:" :
(grep "grep -n -e www *|wc;:")
can be used as a stopgap in the meantime by impatient users.

By the way, the history lists of M-x compile and M-x grep seemingly
have no easy way to be mutually read by M-p etc.  There ought to be a
way, but not via M-p itself...  Indeed, there also should be an easy
way to exchange history with dired's history too, etc.
