It goes from an un-intuitive (and undocumented) one to an
intuitively-named (and documented) one.  In my opinion, the old variable
is just as wrong as the current one (because it seemed to imply that
compilation would be immediate instead of deferred).

And I've explained twice now that 2 is wrong -- these changes do exactly
what was requested:

  1) It allows testing without writing to $HOME.  (This has nothing to
  do with --batch -- testing happens in interactive Emacsen, too.)

  2) It allows people to run an AOT Emacs without triggering further

If you have a suggestion for an alternative change that achieves these
two things, I'm all ears.  (But if your objection is "people shouldn't
want those two things", I'm down to just two ears again.)
