Removed warning when PYTHONDONTWRITEBYTECODE is enabled #1231

This is an old warning (from 8 years ago) that isn't useful anymore.
If one disables generation of .pyc files, one constantly gets these warnings, polluting the output.

old warning isn't useful anymore.

Can you reference the commit where the change was added and provide some justification for what has changed since it was added until now that changes its usefulness? Or can you provide some other reason why it was never useful?

Yes, the warning was introduced here, as part of the fix to issue 127.

I believe the warning was never useful, as that is the official way of turning off .pyc generation.
This setuptools warning basically nags users that use this feature with noise on stderr.
