When these cached files are not available and cannot be created
(because a .py file lives in a directory where you don't have write
permission, for instance), life will always be slow, and you'll get no
notification of this fact.
What would people think of a standard warning (Cannot write compiled
file /foo/bar.pyc), which could be disabled by, say, a variable in sys
or a command line option?
