Since I've come against this myself, I'd really like to know a single
sane reason to ship just pyc files. Don't get me wrong, I like the
product and will recommend it all day long, but shipping just pyc
files is odd. Not only gives it a queasy feeling of "well, I guess
they really don't trust their paying customers", it also legally
prevents me from creating patches to help you guys because that would
imply I ran one of the easily-available code decompilers against
those Python modules. Even regardless of the ease with which pyc
files can be reconstituted into readable Python.
I just couldn't come up with one good reason.
