Python doesn't care. It only needs .py when you import modules from another

There *might* be server settings so that it matters, like I can imagine that
on a Windows server the .py is needed to associate it with Python, but on a
Unix server it should never matter, extensions are irrelevant.

So it's probably a matter of taste.
