note that my letter was not contradicted too LOL

1. many experts just don't read this list due to its high traffic,
write into ghc-users instead

2. ghc is too large system and no one know all its details. this
particular option may be set up 10 years ago and never
touched/studied by anyone since then. for example, i'm ghc performance
expert [to some degree], but i don't know anything about its build
system. all that i can tell is that ghc base library build times don't
prohibit use of -O2
