Recompile bytecode files when installing a new version/variant of an
interpreter (emacs, python), for instance.  This is currently solved
by running /usr/lib/emacsen-common/emacs-package-install in postinst.
Python isn't really solved in a clean way.

I would love to see this, it could make a lot of things _much_ cleaner
and easier.
