Command line parameters and/or environment variables are suitable for this,
but they aren't immediate and, also, have global effect.
I wish an explicit ("Explicit is better than implicit") and a finer control
over optimizations, with a per-module usage:
from __compiler__ import disable_peepholer, strict_syntax, static_builtins,
