What's a simple test case for this?  I don't have a USB printer but I
tried /usr ro on boot with no .pyo files.  This does not cause cups to
crash....  Starting other programs which have no .pyo files with
PYTHON_OPTIMIZE set also causes no problems.  Is the bug really only
about SELinux and not a ro partition?  Does this only happen with cups
and USB printers?

Being an anti-pyo person, I'd like to understand this problem so I can
be converted :-)
