OK, so I took Nick's suggestion of doing header verification separately from the actual compilation, but I ended up just writing the patch from scratch to see how a possible API might play out. ATM the API is as functions and private, but if I find the need/desire to make it public (or enough ask for it) I will before 3.4 comes out. Probably will know better once I rewrite py_compile/compileall to use this code.

Thanks to everyone for spending so much time talking this issue out with me.
