apparently, the options "-On" are accepted but never used! The program
runs a fixed set of optimization passes, unless "-disable-opt" is
specified. What is the reason for this? If this is intended, then the
documentation should say something about this IMHO.

Probably the standard answer: "because noone has done it yet" :)
