For my 0.02GBP, I had previously suggested “-fc++-module-file[name=]“

In review, that  was felt to be possibly unwieldy if there was a default (e.g. that the
module BMI takes the basename and appends .gcm/pcm), but I will offer the suggestion
a second time ;)

I think it is reasonable to include c++ in the spelling, since other languages supported by
GCC (and clang in due course) have modules.
