New submission from Armin Rigo <armin.rigo at gmail.com>:

"python-dev" discussed again the -O and -OO options to Python.  It seems that
even without -O support, it would still be useful to support -OO ("remove
doc-strings").  An easy implementation would be to strip the docstring from code
objects when they leave the compiler/.pyc writer/.pyc loader.  They would still
be present during compilation and in the written .pyc files.  This would only be
a memory saving optimization.
