Why not, but then don't we want to do something in the Python package
infra, and in the Python 2/3 packages themselves to avoid spending time
biulding the .pyc files?

Also, using TARGET_FINALIZE_HOOKS would be nicer. But there is the
issue that the hook is the same between python and python3, so we
wouldn't know where to put it.
