Like other command line options this should be mentioned in
documentation as well, not just in "as --help" output.
I'm pretty sure it wasn't my idea to have this command line option.
Emitting encodings which are going to fault should imo never go
silently. See how e.g. similar %tmm checking is done without respecting
this option. The only use of the setting that I consider reasonable is
that in process_suffix().

+an instruction suffix.
