Can we have a named -X option that also takes a parameter? I don't see any 
existing examples of that. This option needs to take the path where bytecode 
should be written.

Are there strong use-cases for having a CLI arg for this? I don't mind doing 
the implementation work if there are, but right now I'm struggling to think of 
any case where it would be better to run `python -C /tmp/bytecode` than 
`PYTHONBYTECODEPATH=/tmp/bytecode python`. Our existing "takes a path" env 
variables (`PYTHONHOME` and `PYTHONPATH`) do not have CLI equivalents.
