It should be noted here that a 1% speed issue
is considered a severe issue in FFmpeg development.
(Or in other words: A 1% performance improvement is
generally seen as a very valuable contribution.)

No objection here, but I should repeat that you
should elaborate a bit on what kind of issues
can be avoided by the options.

No, that is not my attitude, on the contrary:
If the relevant options fix some (theoretical) issues,
they should be made default (with an option to disable
them) or at least configurable.
If the options do not fix any (theoretical) issues
though, they should indeed be removed.
In any case, options that are not understood
should probably not be used.

I hope you are compiling your executables with
increased assert-level set (this definitely fixed
some security issues in the past).
I like Wikipedia but it is typically not relevant
for technical discussions.
