How can a module find its own module object?

'import myname' is not exactly a reliable way to get your own module
object - the file may be renamed, placed in a package, affected by
case-sensitivity problems, loaded from somewhere not in the path, etc.

Is there any other way for a module to find itself other than searching 
sys.modules for a module whose __dict__ is globals()?
