I thought the docs covered this, so I left it out.  The
"main" .py file is not converted to a .pyc file for reasons I can't 
remember (and don't care... after it, that's just the way it is).  If 
you really need a .pyc for it, the simplest thing to do is "import 
myprog" from the interactive prompt.  The compileall module I mentioned 
would also be able to do this.
