But is it maybe time we reconsider this or add an extension? It’s really getting out of hand now.

Problem with compiler switches is that they’re decoupled from the program itself and not documented in the actual programs source code. Honestly I’d prefer all compiler switches be stored in the program file so we didn’t have distribute extra files that contain command line arguments.
