Well, overlay-arrow-variable-list is apparently intended to be extended.  If
various commands add their own arrow-wish to this, and only the first gets
displayed, it can still be that compile's arrow doesn't appear.

And as long as this is not available on text displays it's not so good.  I was
mistaken however because I'd used the 6 months old standard emacs there.  The
only thing missing is assigning something like "-->" to overlay-arrow-string,
maybe with some face applied.

Otoh, it would be the quickest patch to make...  Since there can be only one
arrow anyway, I wouldn't worry about a new variable, simply assign something
to overlay-arrow-position.
