Someone submitted a bug stating that calling "python setup.py clean"
leaves an unpredictable set of .pyc files lying around. This could be
reproduced, and therefore we clean them now. I have not yet seen a
test case that lets .pyo files lying around.
For example, I looked at the package python-weblib-1.3.3. Its setup.cfg
compile = 1
optimize = 1
I don't know if that's the same as your case, but anyway. Running clean
leaves a file
but there is no file ./pyweblib/__init__.pyo or anything like that.
So before we go around deleting .pyo files, we at least need to see
some .pyo files that need deleting in the first place.
