To me, the existing "(default), verbose, details" option set makes sense,

It is confusing. 'verbose' applies to IR, while 'details' applies to
Ah, so -fdump-rtl-all-quiet-verbose might actually be meaningful?
Interesting, I had not spotted that. Like I said, the documentation
could use a once over.
These are new proposed flags: To control IR dump before the pass or
after the pass.
Why? Is there a case where the dump from after the previous pass is not the
same as the dump before the next?
For productivity -- without it, you either need to remember all pass
ordering, or always dump-all --> the latter can be prohibitive for
very large files.
