Thanks for the link!  I don't really see anything significantly
different to what I'm doing though.

The issue I had w/ .pyc files was probably caused by something
specific to the GitHub Actions Ubuntu image.

I'm still kind of curious as to what that is, but I don't think it's
currently worth investigating since everything works as expected using
a Debian buster container/VM.
