Agreed.  If it's just turning on code that is in theory portable, don't

As for options, if there are no additional dependencies, that takes the
usual reason for options off the table.

The other question is: Why would someone want the option off?  Does
something bad happen if you aren't expecting it?  Are there megabytes
more of code?  So far I haven't seen a reason to make it an option.
