One doesn't have to suffer the problems and learn the option exists afterwards.

In the end I can understand why a new feature might not be default to start with - until a lot of people have used it and are sure that it works everywhere.

Look, no one is claiming that this feature is useless.  I just spent
two days researching and implementing it on Windows, something I
wouldn't do if I thought it wasn't important to have.

What we are talking here is whether to have this turned on by default.
I hope you are not going to claim that adding -O to a Make command
line to get the new behavior is too hard.  By contrast, having to type
-Onone to have the _old_ behavior back might very well annoy a few.
