Transcribing it here because not everyone may see it.
From the PR https://github.com/dlang/dmd/pull/11509:
>> Add `-gdwarf-<version>` compiler switch
>Shouldn't the switch be -gdwarf=5 to be consistent with DMD's
>other flags? Then, it's also >possible for the user to list all
> Maybe, but Clang and GCC have the -gdwarf-<version> switch, so
> I added the same for consistency between different compilers.
> What do you think ?
> I think sticking to the DMD style makes more sense here,
> because I am not sure a lot of people would like to have at
> least three more CLI flags. IIRC there has been a precedent
> with make flags. What do other people think?
So, what's your point of view, guys ?
