Wouldn't comint-mode be adequate?  Ah, but it's a major mode.  Perhaps
compilation-mode ought to be a derived mode -- is that what you mean
by "inherit from" (define-derived-mode)?

Notably, some  compilation or installation targets  involve sudo, then
asking for a password...

(add-hook 'comint-output-filter-functions 'comint-watch-for-password-prompt)

should work in *compilation* buffers as well.
