It will be part of the windows installer, not the build process.

If it's ever part of the build, for sure, it will need a switch.

Just an FYI... Right now it looks like you're only considering this
for Windows based systems which is fine, but it ends up being
generalized as part of the build process make sure there's a build
flag to disable it. At least on Fedora/Redhat rpmbuild byte-compiles
python as part of the package generation process.
