For the record, I thought setting PYTHONDONTWRITEBYTECODE from inside the setup.py script:
os.environ['PYTHONDONTWRITEBYTECODE'] = True
might do the trick, but
- it isn't available on 2.5
- it doesn't work on 2.6 (didn't test on 2.7 nor 3.x)
Oh well. Guess I'll include a note that says, "Ignore any syntax errors during 'setup.py install', they're harmless."
