I like the sound of David's suggested approach better. I found it
weird that autogen was to be removing the Python bytecode on the
grounds that we shouldn't be packaging them with the source tarball,
since it doesn't really strike me as autogen's job. Doing this in
dist.sh, on the other hand, is very appropriate, and satisfies Max's
desired behavior. I'd +1 a backport of that, but am -0 on the change
to autogen.
