If it's based on the Plan 9 compilers, chances are it doesn't do
any of the above except for register optimization and minor
branch optimization. I'm not actually convinced of the merit of
most of those optimizations in most cases, at least not as far
as GCC is concerned (GCC is a really generally atrocious
compiler collection).

Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place.
Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by
definition, not smart enough to debug it.
