What kind of tools are you talking about?
Even if a binding location is discarded, we can still fake __FILE__
and __LINE__ without using a binding:

  eval <<-END, nil, "/etc/passwd", 1
    def foo
    end
  END
  p method(:foo).source_location  #=> ["/etc/passwd", 1]

So, source_location user should know and accept the fact that the
information is not trustable.
Why do you think only a binding location as a problem?
