Just a note: __file__ is a valid attribute that is supposed to exist in 
modules, so I don't think we should leave it unassigned.  We may be doing 
something incorrect with it (or it may be an inspect bug, there's a LOT of 
those), but we certainly should assing it.  I've put this in 0.7.1, please 
don't remove it unless you can ascertain that you have a full solution which 
covers normal use like:

In [1]: cat bug__file__.py
print '__file__ is:',__file__

In [2]: run bug__file__.py
__file__ is: bug__file__.py

and which helps with Jorgen's situation as well.
