But you can if you're willing to hack things a little bit, surely? Possibly even without hacking -- IIRC there are some things that are
It would be quite serious hacking. Distutils just calls the compiler exactly as it was called for compiling the Python interpreter. To change the optimization level, I'd have to parse the command to extract any optimization options, remove them, and put my own instead. I can't imagine anything more platform-dependent.
