Previously we insisted on using --target= because we wanted that to be the
consistent driver syntax for this option. I would prefer to continue to
insist on that.

I think offering choices here is a very serious mistake. This is our
driver's flag, and we should have some freedom to specify its syntax.

Could we go back to requiring explicitly '--target='?
