In Emacs 22, when your frame is say 1400x1000 and displays just one
file, M-x compile splits the window horizontally and uses the variable
compilation-window-height to decided on the height of the window showing

In Emacs 23, the window is split vertically instead of horizontally and
compilation-window-height doesn't seem to have any effect anymore.

I like the change that the window is split vertically instead of
horizontally, however I see some issues:

- compilation-window-height looses its meaning (the variable is not
  mentioned in info but shows up in M-x customize-group <RET> compilation)
- the change doesn't seem to be mentioned in NEWS (at least I couldn't
  find it)
- there doesn't seem to exist a possibility to influence the width of
  the new window


Have you ever considered how much text can fit in eighty columns?  Given that a
signature typically contains up to four lines of text, this space allows you to
attach a tremendous amount of valuable information to your messages.  Seize the
opportunity and don't waste your signature on bullshit that nobody cares about.
