I also estimated some gains for different scenarios. For example in a
normal TW installation:

* Python 2.7 + 3.6

- pyc/pyc: 127M total
- py: 109M total

* Python 3.6 only

- pyc/pyc: 91M total
- py: 70M total

Or one could remove py and keep pyc/pyo.
That's basically how GNU C C++ & Fortran, Erlang, ocaml, .. all work ;-)

I would definitively not do that, as the traceback will lack context. Imagine
supporting a system that fails without pointing the source code that generate
the error. In my experience having the pys makes the debugging experience a
lot better.
