You may have confused "absolute import" with import from "installed"
library as opposed to importing a package under current working
folder, while in fact every folder under sys.path is just as
"absolute" - and CWD is one of those directories.

Of course the peps are mostly optimized for covering the discussion
that has taken place on python-dev instead of pedagogic factors. :-)
