Python file compatibility cannot be fully determined until byte-compilation time, which happens at installation.
If you care only about byte-compilation, installing a package is overkill. It's way easier and faster just to unpack the .deb (dpkg-deb -x) and run `python2.7 -m compileall /path/to/unpacked/stuff`.
I think all packages should have test suites and all test suites should be run at build time - *and* the build should fail if the test suite fails (something I'm not sure happens all the time).
