It would be nice that you can set certain compiler options only on certain 
targets, but, that is not what people are asking for. Don't make it more 
complicated than it is. All users want is an easy to access "debug 
build/release build" switch. The FPC IDE's fixed number 3 profiles already 
provide more than that. You can code it in an afternoon, which could be 
well spent, even if you want to code a more complex system later on.
