If I’m understanding correctly, #12934 is one of those issues.  I agree that an option would be better than nothing, but 1) it would not help with older Pythons 2) it would not help naïve users 3) it would complicate the command-line interface of Python.  (Not saying I’m against the idea, just listing cons.)
