As has been pointed out before on python-dev [1], the mandatory version of '__future__.absolute_import' does not match reality.  In Python 2.7, absolute imports are not the default.


The attached patch should fix the documentation and Lib/  I set the mandatory version to (3, 0, 0, "alpha", 0), in accordance with other features that became mandatory in Py3k, though there never was a 3.0a0 release.  I double-checked that absolute imports already were the default in 3.0a1.

The patch should probably be applied to all branches.
