By default jython seams to write (pre)compiled *$py.class files beside *.py files.

This does not fit the case when the user who launch the jython application does not
own the application itself and so directories containing the *.py files.
(user may not have right to write the *$.py file)

Need a way to specify an alternate directory to store the *$py.class files or to deliver
pre-compiled *.py files.
(need to know if the last option is an acceptable/safe one.)

Having a second though.

As *.class files depend on jdk used, "precompiled" option is not suitable.

Should be good to have these files wirtten into 'cachedir' beside packages' indexes

In Jython3 there will be special directories for .class files - see for details. I'm still going to close this as it is definitely on the roadmap but not in the way you suggest.
