i'm opposed to "-release" flag which turns off assertions and range
checking, not to the builds which can be titled "official releases". we
have official DMD releases, alphas, betas and RCs. it's logical to turn
on some experimental features in alphas/betas for people to play, but
turn such features off for safety reasons in RC/release.

turning off assertions and range checks decreases safety. turning off
experimental features and features with very unexpected side effects
increases safety. it's ok to make alphas/betas less safe. it's not ok
to make RCs/releases less safe.
