After some discussion, it appears that there are three features (or
sets of features) that would be nice for compilation mode.

(1) Provide more, useful, keybindings on keys which are not normally

    The commands could be recompile and selecting the buffer from
    which the *compilation* buffer was created.

(2) Provide a way for the user to type some text, then hit RET to
    send input to the compilation process.

    This means that RET should not do compile-goto-error anymore.  It
    also means that SPC and DEL should not scroll.

(3) Provide a user option to use a different keymap which uses keys
    which are normally self-inserting.  In this case, there would be
    a command (bound to a key such as `s') which reads a string from
    the user and sends it to the compilation process as input.

    This behavior would not be default, but it would be useful for
    people who rarely need to send input to their compilation

Does this describe a useful compromise, or is there a mistake or
something controversial in the above items?

I like BOTH kinds of music.
