Yes, see Bug#24912 and Bug#24913.

It's not the byte compiler specifically, the defun* macro (aka cl-defun)
expands &key into &rest, so the expansion has &optional &rest.  At any
rate, using &optional is meaningless there, so the solution is just to
remove it.

We should perhaps put something about throwing error on '&option &rest'
into NEWS though.
