They are, but Python 2.5 is still an optional installation and for some
packages is still a dependency that gets installed.

That was how I met the issue - tried to install some other package
("rpm" which depends on "python-rpm" which depends on "python2.5") which
caused this issue when the python2.5 installation process tried to
byte-compile the packages from "/usr/share/pyshared/" into its
"site-packages/" directory.
