There are .pyc files here and there in the XO core software.  I do 
not expect to myself be changing Activity code -- but if the OLPC is 
supposed to be "easy enough for a kid to program" - *someone* will.

For myself, I don't have wireless at home; to make my communications 
setup work properly I need to "patch" some "telepathy/presence" .py 
files.  [Having changed a .py file, I delete the same-name .pyc 
file, and reboot.]  I'm not sure what created those corresponding 
.pyc files.  I __wish__ there was an easy-to-find GUIDE explaining 
how and when the various .pyc files were installed.
