Starting Python from the terminal with no welcome message

Does exist some option I could send to the python interpreter during an
interactive session in order to avoid the printing of the  introductory
message just above the top prompt ?

In my case, the welcome message is the following :

Python 2.5.2 (r252:60911, Jul 31 2008, 17:28:52)
[GCC 4.2.3 (Ubuntu 4.2.3-2ubuntu7)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

gdb has such an option (the so-called quiet option).

Compare this :

$ gdb
GNU gdb 6.8-debian
Copyright (C) 2008 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
License GPLv3+: GNU GPL version 3 or later

This GDB was configured as "i486-linux-gnu".

with that

$ gdb -q
