This has come up before, and I'm not convinced it makes sense to 
introduce an abstraction -- how generic could it really be? We'd 
basically enumerate all the existing compiler options, a lot of which 
probably do not have counterparts elsewhere, and then people would be 
writing compiler-specific code anyway.

Yeah, much later...
