Unless Tobi (or others) decided to the change the way things have worked
and thus breaking a lot of ancient configuration files, the global tags
only apply to a target for which that particular tag is not defined.

So, if you need some other options for a particular target but still want
to growright, you need to specify ALL the options that you want for that

	Options[target]: bits growright
