I have a wsgi script writing to a log file. The contents look like this (truncated):

  File "build/bdist.linux-x86_64/egg/trac/ticket/", line 284, in _count
    % sql, args)[0][0]
  File "build/bdist.linux-x86_64/egg/trac/db/", line 122, in execute
    return db.execute(query, params)
  File "build/bdist.linux-x86_64/egg/trac/db/", line 128, in execute
    cursor.execute(query, params if params is not None else [])

When confronted with this logfile, I have no idea where build/bdist.linux-x86_64 lives. Rather than hoping a well-timed lsof is adequate to catch the actual script path, I'd like to be able to set a sys.flag to always log the real, fullpath of the .py script either instead of, or alongside, the file path.

Python 2.7 is (almost) end of life and well beyond feature-freeze, so this can only go into 3.8 or better.

Since the paths logged are relative to the current working directory, perhaps you could just have your script log the working directory?
