[Python-Dev] FYI: wsgiref is now checked in

Just noticed that, at least on Windows, test_wsgiref fails when Python
is run with -O (but passes without -O):

This may be because compare_generic_iter() uses `assert` statements,
and those vanish under -O.  If so, a test shouldn't normally use
`assert`.  On rare occasions it's appropriate, like test_struct's:

            if x < 0:
                expected += 1L << self.bitsize
                assert expected > 0

That isn't testing any of struct's functionality, it's documenting and
verifying a fundamental _belief_ of the test author's:  the test
itself is buggy if that assert ever triggers.  Or, IOW, it's being
used for what an assert statement should be used for :-)
