"""
   Controlling Generation of Bytecode Files

Abstract

This PEP outlines a mechanism for controlling the generation and 
location of compiled Python bytecode files. This idea originally arose 
as a patch request [1] and evolved into a discussion thread on the 
python-dev mailing list [2]. The introduction of an environment variable 
will allow people installing Python or Python-based third-party packages 
to control whether or not bytecode files should be generated at 
installation time, and if so, where they should be written. It will also 
allow users to control whether or not bytecode files should be generated 
at application run-time, and if so, where they should be written.
