Good idea.

I'm not sure.  Maybe the way is to make all revert-buffer-functions be

If I understand your message correctly, then the problem with the
buffer menu revert function is that it pops up the window even if it
wasn't visible before.  Then, for this case, one approach would be to
change the revert function to just update the contents of the buffer
menu buffer, instead of also popping up the window.

Oh, yes!  Quite often, I'm wondering about the strange list of
buffers, because I'm not aware that I need to revert the buffer.
(Though I use ibuffer these days.)

The *compilation* buffers currently have a function that reruns the
compilation, I think.  Maybe it would be good to just remove that, and
require people to use M-x recompile RET instead.  Hooking
recompilation into reverting seems wrong to me, anyhow.  But that's
just my taste.
