> Currently, it's possible to implement this optimization using the Unix command "hardlink".

PR 19901 avoids the dependency on external "hardlink" command.

In practice, PR 19901 only impacts newly written PYC files, whereas using manually the "hardlink" command cannot track which files are not or not. "hardlink" command is less practice, PR 19901 avoids modifying PYC files that we don't "own".
