I'm not sure I understand the above.  Have you submitted a python-mode
package here in emacs-devel?  If so, I have missed it.

I think in this case (and most others), what does help is a concise but
precise bug-report.  I still haven't seen that about your erlang-mode code.
Of course, maybe you'll be able to fix your erlang-mode code, but I think
it would be better if it's not needed (and I assume you agree), so if you
could explain to us what does erlang-mode do that breaks with the new
compile.el, maybe we can improve compile.el's backward compatibility to
cover this case.  I already have changes pending to add backward
compatibility for compilation-parse-errors-function, used in tex-mode
(in the long run, it'll be better to change tex-mode to use newer
compile.el facilities, but I hope that by getting compile.el to work with
the current tex-mode, I'll help it work with other packages as well).
