Installing files to /usr/bin and forcefully removing execution permissions just because its supposed to only work when virt-manager is installed and chmod +x in its .install script is an absolute no-go.
This script has to be moved into the virt-manager package.
Additionally there is no good pyo/pyc handling, those should be tracked by pacman and installed through the package, not by python when someone starts it as root.

Find attached a PKGBUILD and .install script that addresses all this issues (also the pkgrel is bumped)
- compiles pyo and pyc files in virt-install
- removes rm -r *.pyc
- moves the virt-manager script to virt-manager package

This task depends upon

"Additionally there is no good pyo/pyc handling" -> I'd go further and state no files should end with .py in /usr/bin/
