       -V VRANGE
              force  private  modules  to  be  bytecompiled with Python version from given range,
              regardless of the default Python version in the  system.  If  there  are  no  other
              options,  bytecompile  all  public modules for installed Python versions that match
              given range. VERSION_RANGE examples:

       · 2.5    version 2.5 only

       · 2.5-   version 2.5 or newer

       · 2.5-2.7        version 2.5 or 2.6

       · -3.0   all supported 2.X versions

       -X REGEXPR, --exclude=REGEXPR
         exclude items that match given REGEXPR. You may use this option multiple times to  build
         up a list of things to exclude
