I am not convinced by the whole .pyp idea, but it can certainly be
experimented with.  I regard it as an optimization only --- which might be
very worthwhile, but that's not the point.  We should avoid any kind of
optimization at all for the current Python-in-Python interpreter.  
Similarily, there is no need to support .pyc files to claim CPython
