Marking this one as closed.

Also, rejecting the various ways to disable peephole optimization.  
This was discussed with Guido long ago and the decision essentially 
recognized that for most practical purposes the output of the peepholer 
is the generated code and no good would come from exposing upstream 
intermediate steps.

Since then, I believe Neal got Guido's approval for either the -O or -
OO option to generate new optimizations that potentially change 
semantics.  In that situation, there is a worthwhile reason for the 
enable/disable option.

resolution:  -> wont fix
status: open -> closed
