How about: "new features are randomly added based upon demand".

IMO always the same as the compiler uses by default. Of course we might run
into issues if IDE's and command line compilers do different things by
default, but we'll cross that bridge when we find it.

Yes, if it's commonly used and changes/breaks the compilers ABI.

But of course given than N options give us 2^N library variants, we'll have
to be careful how many of these options we add/support.
