-noboundscheck should be deprecated and replaced with
-boundscheck=<all|safe|none> for a couple of reasons.

1. What -noboundscheck actually does is confusing. Its purpose is to turn off
bounds checking in  safe code (and all other code) which comes as a surprise to
a lot of people. -release turns off bounds checking in non- safe code (which
also surprises some people) but leaves it on for  safe code.
2. There is currently no way to turn on bounds checking for release builds
currently.
3. There is currently no way to turn off bounds checking for non- safe code
without pulling in everything -release does (or turning off bounds checking for
 safe code too).

If we want to take this one step further there should be command line options
(both enabling and disabling) for every effect -release has and -release should
just be an alias for specifying a set of those options.

(Martin Krejcirik came up with the idea for -boundscheck=)
