Another argument against PYTHONXOPTIONS is that each implementation is free to decide which -X options it wants to support, and we don't really define what they're supposed to do with options they don't recognise.

By contrast, there's an established behaviour for unknown environment variables: implementations that don't support them just ignore them.

So +1 for PYTHONDEVMODE=1 from me - that also gives us more flexibility if we decide to add arguments to the option later.
