I thought it would be nicer for __file__, __name__ and __package__ to reflect the actual source code metadata (__file__ is always a py file while __cached__ may point to the compiled bytecode). But I don't have any strong feelings about that.

Yes, __file__ can end up misleading if you modify the Python source without recompiling, but I think most people would only read the code without modifying it.
