I have been using the new behavior for a while, and can confirm that
it is inconvenient.  It would be more natural if calling `compile' or
`grep' reused the same buffer where they were called, because when
called on the compile/grep buffer these commands are perceived as
commands which operate on the current buffer rather than as commands
which create a new buffer.  And users who want to start compilation
in a new buffer, can do it from any buffer not in compilation mode.
