exactly

>From a user perspective, 'deep-profiling', 'debug', 'decl-debug',
'parallel', etc. are *features* one wants to have in a program. With the
exception of 'parallel', this works by specifying a single option. For
the time being, I will use my proposed solution to simplify my use-case
for me, maybe limiting the option implication to 'asm_fast' only.

For me personally, parallelism in general and implicit parallelism in
particular, is a very interesting feature of Mercury.

Best regards
Matthias
