I don't know that flags should be included as-is. Instead, it should be
up to the consumer to match the stdlib with the compiler to forward the
right flags (the very hypothetical MSVC-with-libc++ is unlikely to use
`-W` flags with letters rather than an integer). This is the purpose
behind the `is-std-library` boolean. Other reasons for flags should have
similarly high-level indicators.
