If you use Python -OO is it a permanent condition??

It would be enough to simply look for the respective "other"
bytecode file type as well, if nothing else has been found
when trying to import a module. The -O setting only has any
real relevance when freshly compiling from *.py, after all.
Some small amount of added convenience from the side of the
interpreter would be highly appreciated in this point.
