This first patch spots the issue, but doesn't solve it if the bytecode of the function is > 32700 (see PyCode_Optimize comment). However with this patch, we get the LOAD_CONST anytime for None, True and False.

There is two questions :

1- is it safe to strip all the code after RETURN_VALUE as the patch does?

2- to correct this bug, we will need a deep refactoring of PyCode_Optimize (so that it accepts any code length).

The other way, is not to rely on PyCode_Optimize to compile return None/True/False, but do modifictations in the compiler itself. This must be the right way to do this, but it's far beyond my C skills and python core knowledge.
