    But scrolling still has to occur for you to be able to see if there's
    anything to read.

That is not true.  Starting a new compilation erases the buffer.
So you will certainly see that the output has started.  Then you
can read it at your own pace.

Or you can type M-> if I want to have it all scroll past.

      With a default of t, you only need to
    intervene if you see something you want to linger on - and only then if
    the compilation did not stop anyway because the something was a
    compilation error - and you get the progress for free.

If it scrolls automatically I often can't even SEE if there is
something I want to look at.  And supposing I do see, by the time
I can get my hands on the keyboard to type anything, a lot more
output will usually have come out.

My decision is not to change the default to t.

    Has someone tried to use my new compilation-auto-jump-to-first-error?
    It stops the scrolling as soon as the first error is spotted.

I have not tried it, but it sounds like a good idea.
Is it installed already?  

Perhaps it should be another value of compilation-scroll-output,
rather than a separate option.
