Incidentally, there are limits on how much trouble we want to take
over such options.

We follow standard calling conventions for whatever system, and anyone
deliberately telling the compiler to be incompatible is pretty much on
their own.

Of course it's another matter if some systems in their normal setup
are one way and others another, then we want to detect and cooperate.
