As discussed in

trying to run python built outside a read-only source directory fails for me because OSError(EIO, ...) is raised when importlib tries to write the byte compiled file.  (I built python in a Linux VM using VMware Player which only had read-only access to the source directory.)

Currently importlib only ignores PermissionError (EACCES, EPERM) and FileExistsError (EEXIST):

Under Python 3.2 all failures are ignored:

so this seems to be a regression.
