This has been discussed to death (at least once a year for the three years I've
been here ;-) I happen to think it's a good idea, but I have no illusions of it
ever being implemented <wink>

A platform independent way of doing this (that handles the case where the file
doesn't originate on the native platform) would indeed be nice, although I don't
think it's a big enough feature to require a PEP (i.e. if you create a patch it
might be accepted ;-)
