No need to use pastebin when its only 2 lines!

Since -m runs a module as a script I think the answer is yes. 

Where they would be different is if you were not in the same folder 
as the module. Then the -m option would search the PYTHONPATH 
whereas without -m I think it would not search for the module, you 
would need to specify the location.
