Did you mean ".. it implies --target-debug"?

I could live with those two.

Currently there is no --il-peephole-optimize option, only a
--peephole-optimize option.  Are you proposing changing that?
That would be possible, but it would mean introducing yet another
option, which I'd rather avoid if we can, and I'm not sure that a
new option is necessary.

Also, --no-trace-optimized should not turn off any optimization
options by itself, it should only turn them off if in addition
debugging is enabled.
