* Deleting .pyo files causes them to get compiled on the target.
* First boot gets *really* slow for python based projects.
* No space gets saved on the target.
* The package manager doesn't know about the files and
  therefore fails to uninstall them, occupying space and causing
  uninstalled python scripts to remain executable.
* It's inconsistent, because python itself and autotools based
  projects already ship .pyo files.
* Probably .pyo files were deleted because .pyc files were
  available earlier, but this has changed and OE-Core's python
  now only generates optimized .pyo files. Deletion of .pyo was
  introduced in 2008, python/04-default-is-optimized.patch
  was introduced in 2009.
