Er, did I misunderstand something? I make a .deb that contains a .py,
but not a .pyc or .pyo, and the postinst compiles it with whatever is
the default version of Python on the system. The prerm removes the .pyc
and the .pyo. What is the problem in this scenario?

My .deb already does all of the above, except for inadvertently
including a .pyc, which is a mistake and a bug.

(There will be a problem when the default version of Python changes. I
don't think we have a way to deal with that.)

Debian developers for gentleness.
