Hi,

I am interested in a small subset: I want to import a file without
a '.pyc' being generated. 

Background: I sometimes missuse python for config files. For example
there is a file $MYAPP/etc/debuglog.py. This file contains simple
assignments

search=0
indexing=1
....

In the code I use it like this:

sys.path.append(...) # Put $MYAPP/etc into the path
import debuglog

...
    if debuglog.search:
        print "Searching for ...."

I don't want pyc files in the etc directory.

Up to now I do it like this:

import debuglog
try:
    os.unlink("...debuglog.pyc")
except:
    pass
