Since absolute imports can be controlled with a future directive, you
can check it out via that module:

>>> import __future__
>>> __future__.absolute_import
_Feature((2, 5, 0, 'alpha', 1), (3, 0, 0, 'alpha', 0), 16384)

Looks like it was held over for 3.0 rather than potentially breaking
stuff across 2.6->2.7.
