There was a post a while back where it was stated that the __debug__
variable is evaluated at compile time, and blocks beginning with
are not compiled. So if you set __debug__=0, then any block beginning
will not be compiled into the program. You can probably get the
straight dope by searching for __debug__ on deja.
