If I understand your use case correctly, I don't see how that hurts anything.
It hurts a ton if you want to use Paster templates, because you'll have files ending in .py that aren't meant to be processed by paster, and _tmpl, all of which are inside non-package data directories, thus won't get included any other way.
You lost me. How does having the .py included and compiled to .pyc hurt anything? .pyc files include a date/time stamp of the .py they were built from, so if you accidentally copy them somewhere and change the corresponding .py file, the .pyc will be ignored and overwritten in the import case, and ignored altogether in an execfile or script-running case.
In no scenario that I understand, does the presence of a .pyc file hurt anything. Could you please explain what problem you think it will cause?
