Historically, the Python optimizer wasn't capable of doing much,

A quick test with the built-in pystone mini-benchmark (taken out of
the standard library so the optimization can be varied) yields [*]:
python without -O : 5802.36
python with -O : 5781.39
That's ~ 0.4% difference, or low enough to be lost in the noise, agreed.
I suspect that if the Python optimizer becomes smart enough to do dead-
code elimination and code motion of invariants outside of loops that
one would see a more significant difference. At the present, it's
only smart enough to optimize pretty dumb cases that most humans would
already deal with...
