Some notes from my investigation of bpo-33185 that seem more appropriate here,
rather than on that issue:
* several of the developer-centric utilities in the standard library have a
shared need to be friendly to imports from the current working directory.
* timeit uses os.curdir, but could be switched to os.getcwd()
* pydoc uses a literal '.', but could be switched to os.getcwd()
* trace, profile, cProfile, pdb, doctest, and IDLE's pyshell all add the
directory containing the file under test
Aside from switching pydoc from a literal '.' to os.curdir, I'm not going to
change any of those (hence why I'm putting these notes here), but I wanted to
capture this info in case does decide to follow through on a "less isolated
than isolated mode, but still omits the current directory from sys.path"
