Dear fellas, why does this do nothing
(compile       "echo plot x+1|gnuplot -persist")  
while this works?
(shell-command "echo plot x+1|gnuplot -persist")

Yes I know there's all kinds of fancy gnuplot modes available, but I
just don't think it is fair that I can't do something with M-x compile
that I could with shell-command.

Both of these will allow me to look at the plot for 22 sec.
(compile "echo plot x+1|gnuplot -persist;sleep 22")
(compile "echo plot x+1\\;delay 22|gnuplot -persist")

Anyway, it seems some component isn't playing be the Unix rules.  Why
can I do (compile "xli file.jpg") and compile waits for me to hit q on
the picture, and all works as expected?
