commandline launch with compatmode

Windows 10, GZDoom v4.5.0
launching via commandline using switches for compatmode i.e

+compatmode 1
+set compatmode 1

changes what is shown as the selected compat mode preset but doesn't appear to change any of the underlying variables
the numbers in the menu under compatflags/compatflags2 don't change either

What we have here is the great undefined-ness of order of execution for static C++ constructors. In this case they pretty much mess up each other's values.
Fixing this would require some major refactoring of how CVARs get set up. It has been on my wishlist for some time, but never became urgent.

Maybe after 4.6.0 - it's something that could be useful for Raze as well.
