No, it wouldn't be a guess, it would be based on where the compiled
bytecode was actually found (wherever in foo.__path__ that may have
been). So __file__ would be the same regardless of whether or not the
source code was actually physically present or not. __compiled__ would
be set only if the code being executed was read from that file rather
than from __file__.
