Hmm, good idea.  I'm trying to look ahead to when we get to
interactive programs too, though.

I know; my question was how to a) know when the asynchronous
compilation process has finished, and b) tell whether there were any
errors, so that if there were none, I can immediately launch the
newly-compiled program in a terminal emulator.

I think the terminal emulator would be preferable to shell-mode, since
in the former case there's only one keystroke that could introduce
some confusion (C-c) and in the latter case there are many.
