Summary: python should obey the FHS

Initial Comment:
[From: http://bugs.debian.org/134762]

FHS Compliance - .py{,c} are architecture independant
thus belong in /usr/share

The Python manual makes it clear that byte compiled
python files are
 platform independant, and thus belong in
arch-independant packages and stored in /usr/share, as
per the FHS recommendations for such things.

So the request is to store them in
<prefix>/share/pythonX.Y.

Python runs on dozens of platforms besides Debian Linux.
Thus the Linux FHS shouldn't concern Python at all. I'd
propose to close this bug as "Invalid".

I think this requires a PEP. A Python package can consist of
byte code modules and extension modules; arranging the
package loader to find those in different directories is a
challenge.
