Thanks Sven. I understand and respect the "by hand" thing.

What I find more problematic is not having all available options listed.
The compiler itself is the natural, most logical place to have an
overview of all options, which can then be further explained in other

If all possible options aren't there, where should people be looking for
a complete list?
