I am not too keen on the use of global variable(s) here. May be we can renew loading the environ variable for each build and store it in the spec or package variable instead.
While it may not matter much in practise I'd rather not like to add more technical debt there.

Other than that the patch looks good from a code POV.

I wonder how we want to address the Python .pyc file issue (and probably others). Not that this is a prerequisite for getting this patch in. We could try to leverage the file attribute mechanism or have a list of REs matching the FILECLASS tag. Resulting files could be given an mtime of SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH+1
