What I'm doing manually is cursing a bit, then switching buffers and
manually typing (global-font-lock-mode 0) to make these popups visible.
   I wonder if we couldn't automate that process?  (Excepting, perhaps
the cursing.)

Would it make sense to push the current value of global-font-lock-mode,
run the rest of what these guys do, then restore the value of
global-font-lock-mode afterwards?  That is, wrap them in a sort of
context manager?
What does global-font-lock-mode have to do with this?  Compilation
mode only turns on font-lock in the current buffer, normally the
compilation buffer.  So just turning it off in that buffer (with
"M-x font-lock-mode RET")  should be enough.  Or am I missing
something?
That's probably sufficient. I'm using being emphatic while I'm cursing and somehow global seems more emphatic than local.
