And what about a kind of configuration file (debconf) for the Python
Debian packaging, saying if the user wants to byte-compile at
installation or not?

I use to mount my /usr read-only, and so the Python "interpreter" would
never be able to save the byte-compiled version after the installation
of the module self.
