if I use this in an official release. Some of the code just needs to be compiled with the highest optimization level, and there is no way I can do that with Distutils.
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 supposed to be subclassed in there, aren't there? I don't remember the details now, but I think that subclassing the compiler class will do it, or possibly customize_compiler()...? Neither are the proper ways, if any exist, I'm sure. From the point of view of saving time, of course, this isn't ideal.
