Note that it would make more sense to drop the optimized ones, as most of our
packages invoke Python without -O or -OO.
It would certainly need more planning and figuring out what shall happen if the
optimized bytecode is not there and users actually run Python with -O or -OO,
but we can discusses that if you want.
I wonder, does running python programs with -O2 actually yield
noticeably better performance?
If that's the case, maybe we could discuss setting -O2 as a
distro-wide default setting?
