I think that the current “capability” of the container is probably a mistake, the sort order shouldn’t be changed.
But to your question. The reason that you have a smaller pyc file is that the container is a Wise product which is actually producted by a product we call the wise compiler. You will need to set up a development environment as documented in the developers guide (install wise with the development option). You have to run the wise compiler on the directory containing the dtml, gif and py files.
