This is where I think conditional execution will become a powerful tool,
optimization is just one example, we could have a file of entities that
control such customizations, so you could easily pick wether you want
optimizations turned on or not, as well as other things. Although this
all requires DTD 3.2 and nALFS 1.3. Once these are available then this
would be a feasible project. I already there are a few packages beside
perl that don't respond to CFLAGS at all, mainly ones that don't use
