I, as a user, have always appreciated knowing when developers thought
certain optimization levels were useful enough to suggest that people
use them. I never go above -O2 unless I have specific reason to believe
that -O2 won't cause any problems. And for ports, WITH_OPTIMIZATION
flags are what I often look for.

I have no problem with making it default of off, and making WITH_ an
option, but I don't think the option should be removed altogether.
