Subject: [gentoo-catalyst] why are pyo files checked into git?

1 I'm just wondering why (slightly, and maybe determinatally) optimized versions
2 of the python modules are checked into git and distributed with it?
4 I'm asking becasue there are a couple of problems with pyo files (vs pyc),
5 namely they strip assert statements. The second concern is that the only
6 benefit is that they will make a first run slightly faster, after that the
7 user should be able to generate them themselves, and being binary git won't
8 handle them well.
