I would like this feature. Cleaning up afterwards is not such a good 
option for a project in progress; the .pyc files will just be re-created 
on the next run.

But PEP 304 seems to be abandoned, if I read the record correctly. It 
has an incomplete patch that is almost two years old and no activity 
since then. PEP 320 (Python 2.4 Release Schedule) says

     - PEP 304 (Controlling Generation of Bytecode Files by Montanaro)
       seems to have lost steam.

The biggest stumbling block seems to be the lack of a patch for Windows, 
though the *nix is also incomplete.
