Python's default setting is to have bytecode enabled (for very good reason) however this results in Django projects being littered with .pyc files if this is not turned off. The performance improvements from allowing bytecode in development are minimal and IMO the disadvantages (clutter, confusion for new users, having to set these as ignored in git/svn/etc), whilst minor, outweigh the advantages - especially as it's such an easy issue to fix.
It is a simple, one-line fix to django/conf/project_template/manage.py and will not affect production deployments of Django applications.
