Prevent pyc or pyo compiled output

Hi.  I have exactly the problem described in PEP 304: I want to tell 
python _not_ to write the .pyc bytecode versions of my modules.  (During 
development it clutters up my directories and 'svn st' output.)

PEP 304 introduces a method to fix this, but I was wondering if there is 
  some sort of quick and/or dirty workaround for now.

Thanks for any tips.
