It sounds like it was inadvertent, but none-the-less,
compile-followed-by-next-error is (in my experience) an overwhelmingly common
method of using the compile functions, and it obviously wouldn't be
acceptable for that not to work in the next real release of emacs.

"Unless there are slaves to do the ugly, horrible, uninteresting work, culture
and contemplation become almost impossible. Human slavery is wrong, insecure,
and demoralizing.  On mechanical slavery, on the slavery of the machine, the
future of the world depends." -Oscar Wilde, "The Soul of Man Under Socialism"
