Please excuse me if these minor points have already been discussed, but
I couldn't see them in the PEP.
(1) What happens if the __cache__ directory doesn't exist and the
enclosing directory is unwriteable, or if it does exist, but is
I expect that the byte code files will simply not be created, and
everything will continue without them.
(2) Presumably this only effects imports, not running python source code
as a script. If I do this:
from the shell, I would expect that no __cache__ directory will be
created, just like today.
BTW, you have some sort of automated warning in the PEP:
System Message: WARNING/2 (pep-3147.txt, line 237)
Title underline too short.
