bytecode-only in a zip is used by py2exe, cx_freeze and the like, for space 
reasons. Disabling it would probably hurt them.

However, making a difference between zipimport and the filesystem importer means 
the application will stop working if I unzip the library zip file, which is 
surprising. Unzipping the zip file can be handy when debugging a bug caused by a 
forgotten module.
