Yeah, in the original design document (
we would say things like -Rpass=pattern=kind, where "kind" would specify
what type of remark we want.

I briefly discussed offline this with Richard. The things I have in mind
for "kind" are:

- kind=applied: what we have today. -Rpass=inline is the same as
-Rpass=inline=applied. It tells you when the pass named "inline" applies
its transformation.

- kind=missed: -Rpass=inline=missed tells you when the pass tried to apply
the transformation but it failed. The diagnostic would include a short

- kind=analysis: -Rpass=inline=analysis is fairly verbose set of remarks
that give more detail on what analysis went on behind the decision to apply
or miss the transformation.

I am still not completely convinced that this is a reasonable interface.
Suggestions more than welcome.
