I think Python is one of the only open source projects to use a
_[A-Z] prefix on non-local symbols. That seems more dangerous that
other non-standard stuff. Also, it could be hard to work around if
someone runs into trouble. My gut feeling is that it's not worth
the effort to change but I wanted it to be considered for 3k.
