Hm, that is true.  With a little uglification it would work in the GCC
case, though (i.e. also emitting @item[x]s for -Wno-... rather than
having both the yes and no case index on the same @item).

Right, fair enough.  What about @itable <index code> <item printer>?
Since the current indices (and URLs) refer to non-dash-prefixed versions
of flags, it might be possible to do something like:

  @macro gcctabopt{body}
  @end macro

  @itable op @gccdabopt
  @item Wpedantic
  @itemx pedantic

  etc etc
  @end itable

Can @alias handle opening block commands so that @itable ... can be
shortened to just @optable in normal code?  This isn't mandatory, but
would have the ``practical for writers'' effect.

Thanks in advance, and have a great night.
