I point is that it shouldn't break at all if possible, although path_stats does potentially provide a way to deal with this (as does using keyword-only arguments for what needs to be verified).

I'll have to think about this. One issue I have with this is I don't love exposing bytecode files too much as people should not typically muck with bytecode files, and if they do they should really know what they are doing. I honestly view them as an implementation detail and not something for people to play with.

I also don't want people to get to into bytecode files as they are not necessarily the best way to store bytecode. E.g. a sqlite DB storing bytecode really shouldn't store all of that info in a single column but instead in separate columns and exposing a function as proposed kind of pushes against that idea.
