Yes, even better.

I tend to agree.

Well, so much for my plan of making the same options work for 2.20 and
2.21.  Perhaps one can amend the set of -dxxx specialist options and
keep them around, and then in 2.21 implement the more high-level
purpose-based system that sets a bunch of subordinate options then.

Then at least the specialist calls will keep doing the same (even though
the _motivation_ for using them might change, so it might lead to people
keeping behavior that they don't need any more).
