Managed to fiddle around some more and looks like the above is a false
concern, many *.pyc, *.opt-1.pyc and *.opt-2.pyc are identical.
Is it? See my next email, Python 3.5.0 RPM seems ~50% bigger right now, unless
I'm making some silly mistake, and from what I see *.opt-2.pyc is nearly always
different from the other ones.
