      Description

      Something that has been of interest to at least 2 researchers is adding command line options that allow more configuration of the opt compiler behaviour. Examples of where these options should be improved include:

      • local expression folding option (currently always disabled)
      • the threshold at which we switch from a tableswitch to a lookupswitch (currently 8)

      an extension to this JIRA would be to consider the naming convention for opt compiler options
