This is incorrect. Python bytecode is arch independent. The .pyc files from one compilation are different from a second compilation out its true. But this is because a timestamp is embedded in the bytecode cache files (.pyc) so that python can tell whether a .pyc or a .py should be used when it finds both on disk.
