> The logic here is that these flags should only be used by people looking at code.  For example, if a pass has a hidden option that controls some knob, you should only find out about it by reading the code.  We don't want people surfing through all the hidden options to "see what is available".

  I see. Maybe we can tell people the existence of "-help-hidden" and
also remind them those options revealed by "-help-hidden" should be
carefully applied only if they have read the code.
