I am fairly sure these are the original lines. I added more to my
personal copy to exclude some things specific to idlelib files. Idlelib
files also have the same statement as the mock files. It is very handy

The file in the directory that contains Ned's coverage package.
At least that is where it is for me.

Since /coverage is not in the Python repo either, I would not expect it

I consider this a problem in the circleci coverage setup, not in the
mock files. A faulty exclude-lines section leads to a faulty coverage
calculation. Ned made it user-editable for a reason.
