Not contradicting this necessarily but I'd like a separate flag to indicate save the IR, even if it isn't being used.

And then, indeed contradicting this, I wonder if "mode" is the right parameter. Maybe we can have "pipeline" and user lists a sequence of functions to call?

Heck, maybe we should have quake functions for: 
 save IR
 convert IR file to C in-proc
 convert IR file to LLVM IR
 save LLVM IR to file 

Problem is that IR cannot be represented in quake?
