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

But this is a new requirement? Does the size of the rpm really matter?
Previously the focus was on image size, i.e. the size of the result
after unpacking all the rpms that go into an image.

How does rpm size come into play?

Right, this is only to answer the question 'How does that save space?'. Having
smaller rpms is not a requirement IMHO. But this will have some side effects
that are nice (faster download, smaller drpms, smaller repos). None of them
relevant to the main problem: Python is fat.
