New submission from Tim McNamara <paperless at timmcnamara.co.nz>:

When developing Python code, I often find myself needing to run "rm *.pyc" so that the interpreter will ignore any new changes that I have made to source files. It's really frustrating when forgotten.

Adding a flag to the reload builtin would go a long way to simplify this process.
