New submission from Brett Cannon:

In environments where bytecode generation is thoroughly controlled, it would be nice if there was a way to specify that the bytecode file is externally guaranteed to be up-to-date, and thus skip any stat call involving bytecode verification. Could be represented with a timestamp of either all zeroes or ones in the bytecode file header.
