OK, so here was what a patch will need:

* Change py_compile to raise an exception when ``not os.path.isfile(cfile) or os.path.islink(cfile)``; probably raise ValueError and mention that import itself would replace the file w/o raising an exception
* Add tests
* Update the docs for py_compile
* Update What's New for 3.4 since this is not backwards-compatible
