The "Option Strict Off will probably fail" warning is really because the
compiler hasn't been tested a lot with it, so in this case the warning would
have helped, so I'll add it later on for the default case too.

There's no difference in the generated code with Option Strict Off, the only
difference is if you get errors or not for some constructs. This also means
that unless you're using features which are only allowed with Option Strict
Off, the warning is completely useless, given that you won't hit any Option
Strict Off-specific codepaths, so making the default value different from MS
will only create confusion or complicate matters for no real benefit, given
that if the code is compilable with Option Strict On, there's no difference,
and if not, you'll just waste the users time making him figure out whats wrong
and adding -optionstrict- to the command line.
