I had the same reasoning as RDM when I worked on byte-compilation in distutils2:

Using py_compile or compileall means that you want to create pyc or pyo files.
Defining PYTHONDONTWRITEBYTECODE or -B means that you don’t want the Python interpreter to byte-compile module as a side-effect of importing them.
These two things seem orthogonal to me.
