autojump installs .py library files into /usr/bin. This is bad for two reasons:

- Files are placed in $PATH that should not and cannot be executed.
- Python will attempt to write /usr/bin/__pycache__/*.pyc if it can, e.g. when autojump is loaded in a root shell.

The latter is especially egregious as the files are untracked.

Please move the .py libraries to /usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages and precompile them using:

python -m compileall -d /usr/lib "$pkgdir/usr/lib"
python -O -m compileall -d /usr/lib "$pkgdir/usr/lib"
This task depends upon

Too many issues with autojump throghout the years, package deleted.
