Not straight-forwardly.

Ouch.  That won't work if DESTDIR is empty; furthermore, even if you fix
that to be $(DESTDIR)$(pythondir), it will also affect *.py files
installed there that are completely independent of your package.

You mean, as opposed to install-exec-am?  pythondir is for byte-compiled
but system-independent files, no?  pyexecdir is for system-specific
stuff IIUC, and is populated at 'make install-exec' time.  'info
Automake "The Two Parts of Install"' and "Python" document the naming

Does it work?  I don't know much about python byte-compilation.  Does it
require dependent python files to be available?  Is it specific on the
location in which the files are compiled?
