        I'd like to see a "Load File" command to go along with "Compile File"

    Well, before I send a message saying that it took less time to add it to
    the source than to delete this message, let me bring up relevant
    points:  Why does the file in M-X Compile File have to be in an editor
    buffer?  Should M-X Load File offer to save and/or compile the file?
    Should it too have the restriction that the file be loaded into an
    editor buffer?
Make it the same as Compile Buffer.  If it wasn't in a buffer, I'm not
sure why I'd want to use an editor command.  Yes, it should offer to save
the file first I guess.  I'm not sure about compiling -- probably not.
