Every function in *every other library* that uses DecoratorTools' 
rewrap() function would have to be changed.  And rewrap() is part of 
the public API, as described here:


The best I think that can be done is change DecoratorTools to raise a 
better error in case of missing docstrings, and issue either a 
warning or an error when its own docstrings are missing.  In both 
cases, the message should mention that -OO removes docstrings and may 
not be compatible.
