When I was working in the CALL_FUNCTION revision, I compared 2.0 final
with my development working using -O3. At that time, I saw no
significant performance difference between the two. And I did notice
a difference between -O2 and -O3.
The strange thing is that I notice a difference between -O2 and -O3
with 2.1a1, but in the opposite direction. On pystone, python -O2
runs consistently faster than -O3; the difference is .05 sec on my
