I don't oppose such an optimization level, even though I don't know
that we agree on what "good debuggability" stands for.
My definition is that it should be indistinguishable from -O0
except that I could live without being able to modify variables.
It's just that changing optimizations is precisely *against* the goals
of my current project. So, don't expect significant efforts to this
end from me at this time.
But you can't achieve the above criterion with your approach.
