Not really bin variants, as I wrote they include only platform
independent files. In pythons case .py python scripts that can run on
any platform that has a python interpreter. Plus are not .py python
sources? Plus, I just succeeded in building flit_core using the build
frontend and it generates, exactly a file of the same name. And that is
then installed. The install step creates bytecode variants (.pyc) of
the wheel.
