We are talking about __builtins__, but not altered by one module.
Suppose there were a large collection of modules, call it a
"framework", and it was stated that by using this framework you also
received, at no cost to you, a bunch of extra built-ins for you to use.
Generally, these new builtins would be used in your code along with
the framework modules. Would that be more acceptable?
