It would be nice if one could call save-some-buffers like this:

(save-some-buffers nil nil 'c-mode) ; all C Mode buffers


(save-some-buffers nil nil "\\`/home/project/foo/") ; all Foo project files


(save-some-buffers nil nil (lambda ()
                             (and (eq major-mode 'c-mode)
                                  (string-match "\\`/home/project/foo/"
                                                buffer-file-name)))) ; both

Then the compile function could be smarter about what files it offers to save
(see below).  But save-some-buffers only allows the caller to distinguish which
buffers are saved via the EXITING argument; I'm proposing adding an optional

you can define a function which looks at the current buffer and returns
t if it should be saved. say its name is 'save-my-buffers'

then do
(defun compile (command)
   (if (or compilation-read-command current-prefix-arg)
       (list (read-from-minibuffer "Compile command: "
                                 (eval compile-command) nil nil
                                 '(compile-history . 1)))
     (list (eval compile-command))))
  (unless (equal command (eval compile-command))
    (setq compile-command command))
  (save-some-buffers (not compilation-ask-about-save) 'save-my-buffers)
;; <--- this is the change from the original compile
  (compile-internal command "No more errors"))

hope it helps,
