I agree that it is a good idea to send input to the compiler.
However, I expect that it is not something the user wants to do
really often, so how about binding a key (`s', say) to a command
which reads a line (from the minibuffer, perhaps) and then sends that
line as input to the compiler?

This way, convenient keybindings can be used for scrolling and
`compile-goto-error' and so on, and users can send input to the

Maybe it would also be useful to provide something like M-x
comint-compile RET which sets up a comint buffer in
compilation-minor-mode.  The `convenient' single-key bindings from the
compilation major mode would become `C-c' bindings in compilation
minor mode, so that would be a way for users to easily deal with
highly interactive compilations.

How about that?

I like BOTH kinds of music.
