The GPL only requires that the source be "made available", yes?  So
functionally the .pyc files would be adequate for all but a few files
such as Defaults.py, with the full .py source withheld pending a
specific request for it, as prescribed by the GPL.  Doing this would
minimize redundancy and would make sense, from the point of view of a
proprietary software vendor such as Apple.
