Font-lock-warning-face is normally used to report warnings or errors, not
normal progress like "run".

*Every* modeline already displays the keyword "Compiling" during compilation.

It will only be seen if the compilation buffer is visible and this is already
heavily fontified.

If we are ever going to get to a pretest then I think we need to stop
suggesting new features.
