Shoot. I added __file__ to try and match the behavior of the standard
interpreter, which DOES define such names in the script's namespace. This was
reported as a bug by Vivian a few days ago. I'll try to look into Jorgen's
report in more detail tonight, and at least find what the proper solution is.
I do think that, since Python determines that __file__ IS always defined in
the execution namespace of a script, we should certainly declare it.
