You probably want to hard link them, rather than renaming them, as the
kinds of precompiled bytecode files Python will try to load will vary
based on the runtime optimisation level:

Up to and including Python 3.4, that's:

None: *.pyc
-O: *.pyo
-OO: *.pyo

For Python 3.5+, the extension in __pycache__ is always *.pyc, with
the optimisation level included in the filename:

None: *.pyc
-O: *.opt-1.pyc
-OO: *.opt-2.pyc

The naming scheme was changed in PEP 488 to avoid the problem where
using -OO would clobber the cached -O files:
