Hi Michael, this seems like as good of a time as any to shed some light on our thoughts around the IronPython samples. First Pyc - Pyc.py was indeed updated for IronPython 2.x in our internal TFS repository last month, but as most people are already aware we don't reship the samples with every minor release of IronPython. The main reason we do this (at least from my perspective) is testing. Most of the samples are GUI-based and need to be tested by hand which is quite time consuming. By cutting the samples out of minor IronPython releases, we're able to release IronPython in quicker intervals and focus more test time on new features as opposed to samples verification. Regardless, we believe this sample depicts a vital aspect of IronPython functionality and will do a one-time 2.0B4 release of Pyc on www.codeplex.com/IronPython sometime today to get feedback.
As for inclusion of the samples into the installer for IronPython 2.0, our current plan is actually to follow what we did with IronPython 1.0. That is, we'll release the samples shortly after 2.0 ships. The fundamental reason for doing this is that delaying samples work lets us put more effort into improving the quality of ipy.exe and the core IronPython documentation.

The IronPython 2.0b4 release notes state:
# Static compilation of python files is now supported again and the pyc.py
sample has been updated to use the newer version.
Where is the updated sample? I can't find it...
As samples are updated for IronPython 2 it would make sense to move them
into the installer (in their own directory on the start menu entry for
