Yes, I thought that's what this was about, but I haven't actually been 
able to reproduce a case where .pyo files are left over.  The fact that 
calling "python setup.py clean" produces .pyc files as a side effect is 
well known in the respective circles, but I don't recall reading 
about .pyo files in that context.  Perhaps the original submitter has 
an example package in mind where the proposed change would be useful?
