Using SVN with Python and .pyc files

Hello All,

I have been moving to managing a lot of my code with SVN and I have 
found it to work extremely well. However, I'm not exactly sure how to 
deal with all of the .pyc files that get created every time I test a 
project or package. How do people manage this? Do you run a script to 
find files with the .pyc extension and delete those before every commit, 
or is there a more elegant way? It seems like a lot of wasted bandwidth 
an memory on the server side to constantly be dealing with these files 
that contain no real information.
