Suggestions for rcompile.el

I would implement the following features that I consider missing in
remote-compile (rcompile.el), but due to lack of time I can't.  So
maybe someone else finds the interesting and will hack them together.
And if that doesn't happen, I'll probobly implement them some day

First suggestion, it would be nice when doing: C-u M-x remote-compile,
that the function would ask once again for the user/host questions.
It is quite annoying not to be able to specify a different host (or
user) sometimes.  Or maybe it should act more or less like compile and
ask all questions all the time, and then have a remote-recompile
command instead.

Second suggestion (might be considered a bug), when redefining
remote-shell-program to "ssh", you will get a "address@hidden password: "
prompt in the compilation buffer.  Where it waits for a password, this
should be changed so that it actually asks the user for the password
in the mini-buffer.  A simple work around for this (atleast in the
case of ssh) is to just use public keys.
