None of the folders in C:\Python24\Lib\site-packages\ have py as a suffix

C:\Python24\Lib\site-packages\pfydate in XP and it contains about 12 py files.
There are exactly three folders under
C:\Python24\Lib\site-packages\ according to the IDLE path browser. This does 
not agree with XP, which has:
