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.
