I think it is ready for -O1 when there is still way to disable it for
programs not updated to deal with it and I think it should stay that way
at least for some version. I sent patch for that already.
Would be ok to apply that patch and leave the regression with -O1

I also think we need less parameters, so I would preffer to stay with
one if at all possible.
