I'd like to suggest the new option for python:

 -q     Do not print the version and copyright messages.  These messages are also suppressed in non-interactive mode.

I often use python as a calculator, for a couple-lines calculations, and would prefer to avoid having printed these three lines.
There is a similar option in e.g. gdb.

AFAICS the implementation would require small changes in Modules/main.c, Misc/ and probably in other docs. If it would be accepted, I can do it.
