I agree that the contradiction should be resolved.

There is an actual `__future__.py` module, which on my system it is at /usr/local/lib/python3.9/__future__.py

But when we use the special syntax:

    from __future__ import <feature>

it doesn't do a normal import of the `__future__.py` module, it is actually a compiler directive.
