That's actually what I suggested: font-lock does not only set faces.
compile.el uses it to set faces (which have no other purpose than aesthetic)
and to set crucial meta info.  So you can't just plain turn off font-lock
because it would break grep, but we could add some option to font-lock
so you can have it ON without any of the visual effects.
