The following code is completely eliminated by the macros.

1. if 0:
2.     secret_debugging_code()

PEP 626 says that all executed lines of code must generate trace events,
so we need to emit an instruction for line 1.

Dead code elimination will remove the `secret_debugging_code()`, but leave the test. The peephole optimiser can then reduce it to a NOP, but won't eliminate it as it is the only instruction for line 1.
