An implementation would be free to ignore (OPTIMIZE (DEBUG ...))
declarations if they were not considered relevant to its way of doing
things.  While additional information added for debugging could be
cleaned away by some system utility later, there is also the issue that
if DEBUG is more important than SPEED or SPACE, then you may want to
suppress some optimizations that could confuse the user.
