I also use git-hooks with a post-checkout script to remove pyc files any time I 
change between branches, which is especially helpful if the different branches 
have code being moved around:

git-hooks: https://github.com/icefox/git-hooks

The script:

$ cat ~/.git_hooks/post-checkout/remove_pyc
#!/bin/sh
echo "Removing pyc files from `pwd`"
find . -name '*.pyc' | xargs rm -f
exit 0
