Warning about dangerous codegen switch

I would like some advice on a very dangerous switch in codegen       codegen -goat

It really impacts badly on productivity and left me pondering the "ICS question" originally posed all those years ago :

Suppose you're on a game show, and you're given the choice of three doors: Behind one door is a car; behind the others, goats. You pick a door, say No. 1, and the host, who knows what's behind the doors, opens another door, say No. 3, which has a goat. He then says to you, "Do you want to pick door No. 2?" Is it to your advantage to switch your choice?

FINALLY!!!! That little "easter egg" was added many years ago, especially for you! For a while, it went undocumented, in the hope that someone would discover it through the source code. But that didn't happen, so a few years later I snuck it into the command-line documentation. So funny that it was you that finally discovered it! Enjoy :)

Nice job with the "click-bait" title by the way :)

By the way, if anyone decides to test this "feature", make sure you have your volume turned up for optimal performance!
