Personally, I don't consider that to be a valid use case. If the user
wants C++20, they get modules because that's what it means to compile

I think I'd feel more comfortable if the user had to explicitly opt
*out* of the C++20 feature. e.g., `clang -std=c++20 -fno-cxx-modules
-fmodules` (though if we went this route, it might be a kindness to
consider renaming -fmodules to -fclang-modules). We have a similar
relationship with exceptions -- you get them by default, but you can
opt out of them if you need to (or opt into other exception models).
