And now moved all optimize files to their own module, to not mess common/.

I have it enabled due that in experimental branch we are testing the 
optimizations code ;-)

Now having the command line option is fine to keep it disabled by default.

I think that yes. 

Also, I think that should be added a note to noSymbols discussing that if 
using that mode by default (alone or combined whit other mode) STRIPPING 
should be set to 0, to avoid possible conflicts or race condintions.

For CLFS and HLFS is a matter to add the function calls.

BLFS is another beast ...

That is fine. We can to privide example files and a sane/failsafe default 
mode, but is the user who should to define their owns modes.
