The pyc files are dependent on a number of Python settings, the Python
version being one of them. I'd rather have the py files generated, so I
can also generate those up front on my machine and actually ship all of
them inside a distribution. The specific Python interpreter on the
target machine can handle py to pyc/pyo compilation just fine.

Only having pyc files is also a pain with zope.testing and its eager
cleanup mode, which would constantly delete these files.
