I created an small shim that replace the

compiled code.

The above sounds to me that compiled code goes into several
user-specific pycache directories. How does that save space?

In two ways basically

* The rpm is smaller
* In the disk, for long services only one version of __pycache__ will be in /
var/cache, the one under were the service is running

Also /var/cache, by definition, can be clearer frequently, or even reside on

But I agree that this point is relevant, as the user cache is in ~/.cache
according to XDG, so this is another alternative.
