Bug#660128: RFS: heybuddy/0.2.3-1 [ITP] - light identi.ca microblogging client

* Benoît Knecht <benoit.knecht@fsfe.org>, 2012-02-21, 13:36:
In the same file, you run compileall unconditionally; I guess it should only run during configure.

What's wrong with running it unconditionally?

As far as I know, none of the Python helpers in the wild create maintainer script fragments that'd check the first argument.

You do not honor the settings from /etc/python/debian_config [1].

Righto. Implementing byte-compiling is not really straight-forward. If you do it yourself, there's a great chance you'll do it wrong.

Apart from the issue mentioned by Benoît:
- Modules are not re-byte-compiled when the default Python version changes. - postrm doesn't remove anything (unless /bin/sh is a symlink to bash, which is not the default these days).
