I tried to get PowerShell scripts working from inside Emacs. That was
quite tricky so I decided to try to bypass the cmd.exe shell by
changing compilation-start the way I suggested.

At least that made debugging a bit easier (though it did not work).

Making the change I suggested can be useful. It is just a few lines
changes. I can send a patch for it.
