Remove Literal Statements

This transform removes statements that consist entirely of a literal value. This includes docstrings. If a statement is required, it is replaced by a literal zero expression statement.

This transform will strip docstrings from the source. If the module uses the __doc__ name the module docstring will be retained.

This transform is disabled by default. Enable by passing the remove_literal_statements=True argument to the python_minifier.minify() function, or passing --remove_literal_statements to the pyminify command.
