Use the existing "runtime-debugging" feature to set the SCL_SECURE
define. This has the advantage that the default behavior is the current
behavior and there's no new feature name to fret about.
Name the new feature "runtime-iterator-debugging", with values "off" and
"checked". Set it to default to "off" for variant=release or
variant=profile, and "checked" for variant=debug. This does change the
current behavior, but in a less jarring way. It also is a generic but
clear name which covers other STD implementations that have such
iterators. It also allows for adding other kinds of iterator debugging
if other STDs implement then now or in the future.
