It appears there is actually a problem after removing .py files, but of a 
different matter.
django-admin.py when called with startproject argument creates basic 
directory structure and copies all the required template files adjusting 
them a bit. However when there is not any .py (only .py{c,o}, which are 
useless at that very moment) files it crashes. In fact it should crash, 
since these .py files are now a part of a new project/app.
Summarizing, we need these files included, because now we are lacking 
templates, which are a part of django's functionality.
The solution I propose is to keep removing all the .py files, but those 
in /usr/share/python2.4/site-packages/django/conf/project_template, where 
are stored these templates. Is this correct?
