You'll find that really ugly code will compile slower than
code that has been optimized some simply due to the fact
that you emit less assembly, and therefore do less I/O.

As for not re-using temp slots, sure I guess that's something
we can do at -O0.  I don't see a need for the new command-line
switch though.
