So co_filename is absolute in Python 3.3, but __file__ on modules is not if a relative path is used from sys.path (as Nick pointed out). Changing this would possibly break code as this has been baked into the import system for quite some time. I think Nick as suggested making all paths absolute for __file__, but I can't remember where that discussion was held and why we never changed the semantics.

Regardless, __file__ being absolute is a different issue than co_filename, so I'm closing this at out of date.
