Same for `python -mhttp.server`, say. 

----

I'd prefer there be a change that the default be always safe from some version on, so that the REPL can do whatever it does, but `-m` etc probably shouldn't even have neither the *initial* current directory *nor* the current current directory in the path unless the interactive session is requested. I am not worried about the garbage that the user would have installed in their own directories breaking things.
