The problem with these two is that the primary use of --save-temps is
to generate a .i file which the maintainers can feed into cc1 to show
a bug.  With the current arrangement, if the user sees a bug with
--save-temps then the maintainers should see it too because they are
running cc1 exactly the same way.  With either of these, the
maintainers will be running cc1 differently to the user and the bug
might mutate.

This would probably cause the .i file size to explode.
