New submission from Terry J. Reedy <tjreedy at udel.edu>:

needs to be updated for 3.2+ to reflect 

The first sentence is still technically correct, but finding x.pyc in the same directory as x.py is now an anomaly, so that sentence, revised, should be near the bottom. Otherwise, the text should say that the default is to put x.<version>.pyc in __pycache__, where <version> is, for instance, 'cpython-32'. Note that this allows other implementations and other versions of cpython to use the same .py file.

I do not know if there is anywhere else that this info is or should be. Using Python?.
