Not really -- much of the code I've seen that tries to guess the source
file name from a __file__ value just does something like this:

   if fname.lower().endswith(('.pyc', '.pyo')): fname = fname[:-1]

That's not compatible with using .pyr, either.


Thus spake the Lord: Thou shalt indent with four spaces. No more, no less.
Four shall be the number of spaces thou shalt indent, and the number of thy
indenting shall be four. Eight shalt thou not indent, nor either indent thou
two, excepting that thou then proceed to four. Tabs are right out.
