I've just committed a patch to master which does the above.  When
compilation-context-lines has the value t, it no longer scrolls the
compilation-mode buffer line to the top of the window, instead using an
overlay with before-string property "=>" to mark the current line.

This time, the changes are entirely within compile.el.  (Plus a
documentation change and a NEWS entry.)

If there are no objections, I'll close this bug as fixed.
