Sure you can. The -d switch is documented and stable, it won't disappear anytime soon. It means running code, but it's all "in the clear" and you can read it first if you think it may be dangerous.
The -d switch puts the package into "debug" mode: it extracts the payload and the metadata into the temporary working directory, then dumps you into a shell so you can explore or edit the internals. At that point, all the scripts are available for your perusal.
