Currently in Fedora, we ship *both* optimized and non-optimized pycs to make sure both -O and non--O will work nicely without root privilieges. So splitting the docstrings into a separate file would be, for us, a benefit in terms of file size.

Currently, the Windows installer has an option to pre-compile stdlib modules. (At least it does if one does an all-users installation.) If one selects this, it creates normal, -O, and -OO versions of each. Since, like most people, I never run with -O or -OO, replacing this redundancy with 1 segmented file or 2 non-redundant files might be a win for most people.
