Yea, I've added it just today.

Yes, <cflags> is just an idea. You can use any other requirements, including

I think that's the case for conditional requirements
obj foo : foo.cpp : <variant>release:<cxxflags>-O1 ;
There will be both -O3 (from "release") and "-01" on the command libe, but I
believe -01 will come last and so override -03.
