The main point is that the scan module needs more control on what it
groks. It is so greedy that it was grokking even hidden files created
by a samba share.
Even if you were to distribute your code as pyc or pyo, it'd be just a
matter of setting a flag or something so it could explicitly scan for
pyc or pyo.
I don't believe this is desired... otherwise explicitly desired.
