At least with recent-ish gccs on Linux, --enable-optimize="-Og -g" provides
quite significant optimization but with the compiler making efforts to
retain good debuggability of the generated code. At least with GDB it
is quite feasible to navigate around in -Og compiled code. I use -Og a
lot; it's a good compromise.
